Animal rights group outraged over Flint, Mich., pitbull registry idea
An Utah-based animal sanctuary is crying foul over a Flint city councilman’s idea to require pitbull owners to register their dogs with police. Under Councilman Sheldon Neeley’s proposed ordinance, owners could be hit with a $500 fine and 90 days in jail if the pitbull attacks someone. City ordinance currently requires vicious dogs to be kept on a leash or muzzle outside of a kennel, pen or house and mandates that owners display “beware of dog” signs, keep insurance in case of injury or death caused by the dog and register the animal with the city clerk.
