The grow­ing num­ber of peo­ple keep­ing live­stock in the cap­i­tal has prompted Welling­ton City Coun­cil to come up with a new set of rules, which have been dis­cussed at a re­cent meet­ing.

Es­sen­tially, so long as it’s un­der con­trol and on a leash, you can take any do­mes­tic an­i­mal for a stroll through the city streets.

We asked you on Neigh­bourly whether you thought peo­ple should be able to walk any do­mes­tic an­i­mal through the city and found the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple63 per cent - sup­ported the pro­posed new rules while 19 per cent were against. Ad­di­tion­ally, about 15 per cent said they ‘‘didn’t care ei­ther way.’’
