the owner of a loud barking dog in north carolina says he'll do whatever he can to curb the noise, except one thing. he says he will not have the dog's vocal cords removed. a solution suggested by an assistant district attorney. abc's andrea fujii has those details. >> reporter: this morning, that bark causing controversy in graham county, north carolina. >> leo's bark does travel, but it's just like -- i mean it's just because he's 120 pounds. >> reporter: neighbors of 7-year-old leo, a great pyrenees, have complained about his barking so much that his owner, michael eddings, has paid $750 in noise violation citations and attorneys' fees. >> i have a neighbor that has three or four dogs that bark. my neighbor across the street has dogs that bark.
so i think, you know, singling us out for one dog is a little ridiculous. >> reporter: those citations forcing eddings to go to court and the assistant district attorney had a suggestion on how to solve the problem. >> he said that, if you have the dog's vocal cords removed surgically, they would drop all charges. it is crazy. it is inhumane. >> reporter: removing a dog's vocal cords is a surgery, but it's also illegal in several states. it's banned in ohio, massachusetts, maryland, and new jersey unless it's deemed medically necessary and must be performed by a licensed veterinarian using anesthesia. and a growing number of vets nationwide refuse to even perform the surgery. leo's owner says he's willing to negotiate but won't put his dog under the knife. >> we'll put up a fence, things like that, but i'm not going to put on a barking collar, and i'm not grog to have surgery. >> reporter: the district attorney not defending the assistant d.a.'s suggestion, saying, whether offered in jest or seriousness, the suggestion was inappropriate. i am unable to offer additional comment as this is now a
personnel matter. edding is due back in court in october. the sheriff's department says deputies have issued multiple citations to eddings for barking and loud music, but since the most recent citation, there haven't been any more noise complaints. andrew, mona. >> andrea, thank you. coming up, we check out the deals and freebies on this national doughnut day. and the breakout events that are playing out across britain for day two of the queen's platinum jubilee. you're watching "world news now."
>> it's a remix to "god save the queen." they're doing a bit of a down shift for day two. our own earl of the overnight, lord williams ganns is live outside of buckingham palace. you miss archie yet? >> reporter: ah. i was actually just talking about that with james and brian, who i've been hanging out with all week. i do miss archie, indeed, but i'll see him soon enough. focusing on the other archie and his relatives this weekend, day two of the platinum jubilee celebrations officially getting under way today with focus on the queen as the head of the church of england. that service at st. paul's cathedral will welcome prince charles, camilla, will and kate, harry and meghan, and countless others, though the palace has announced that the queen herself will not taed. attend. she is resting after yesterday's big kickoff, and prince andrew testing positive for covid according to the palace, so he will not be there as well., according to the palace, so he will not be there as well. but let's talk a little bit more about yesterday's big kickoff. abc's deborah roberts has more on that. >> reporter: it was a magnificent display of might and
majesty. the british royal family out in full force, celebrating the queen's platinum jubilee, marking seven decades on the throne. prince charles and prince william on horseback. the duchesses camilla and kate and the cambridge children in a carriage, waving to the crowd. the grand trooping of the colour complete with the traditional royal air force fly-past, kicking off a days-long celebration. >> it's just what the british do best. isn't it? they really do pomp and pageantry like no one else. it's just -- overwhelming. >> reporter: the 96-year-old monarch appearing before a crowd of thousands on the balcony of buckingham palace with her three heirs, but the queen's 4-year-old great-grandson prince louis stealing the show, making funny faces, covering his ears, and chatting with his great-grandmother. the iconic balcony scene pared down this year.

of the institution. the family needing to modernize, and the monarchy needing to adapt to changing times. >> reporter: the last few years have undoubtedly been among the most difficult. losing her beloved husband philip, mourning him during a pandemic. the queen herself taking a step back from public duties with questions about her health. >> you know, we're celebrating her 70 years on the throne. so i think it's really reminded us that time is fleeting. this could be one of the last major moments that we have with the monarch in such a celebratory circumstance. so we're really making the most of it. >> reporter: today, a grateful kingdom saluting her majesty. >> reporter: our thanks to deborah roberts for that. of course, celebrations just getting under way here in london. that search service set for today at 11:30. and tomorrow night the star-studded concert. we've got elton john, queen and adam lambert, and diana ross. andrew, mona. >> london bridge isn't fallin' down. it's gettin' down.
