Ohio veteran cited for ducks has hearing postponed

Updated: Thursday, July 24 2014, 07:49 AM EDT

   COSHOCTON, Ohio (AP) -- A court hearing is postponed for an Army veteran cited for violating an Ohio village ban by keeping ducks that he says help relieve his post-traumatic stress disorder.

   Darin Welker and his attorney say the Wednesday hearing was postponed while West Lafayette officials consider negotiating a new ordinance covering therapeutic animals.

   Welker says his 14 ducks are therapeutic. He was cited for violating a ban on keeping farm animals in the village about 80 miles east of Columbus.

   Welker says he's hoping for a new law letting him keep his ducks.

   Village Council member Ron Lusk says village officials are trying to work out a solution and will look at the ordinance to see if it needs changes.

   Coshocton Municipal Court officials say Welker's hearing is continued for 60 days.
