Logan, West Virginia Passes Ordinance Requiring $300 Registration for “Dangerous” Dogs

From Fox 11 Eyewitness News in West Virginia:

“Logan’s City Council quickly and unanimously passed an ordinance cracking down on dangerous dogs.

The new law requires a three hundred dollar registration fee for such dogs…an expense some say they can’t afford.”

The transcript continues,

“…Pit bulls, Dobermans, Rottweilers, and dogs of the wolf species are…’Dangerous dogs’ — under a new Logan City Law.

…In addition to the three hundred dollar registration fee for each dangerous dog, Logan residents will also have to pay a 50 dollar license fee, and keep their dogs leashed and muzzled while walking them.

…According to the new law, Logan residents who have dangerous dogs will be notified by the city.

They then have forty eight hours to comply with the law, or their dog will get impounded.”

Please contact Logan City Council members at the following address and politely inform them that breed-specific legislation in any form is ineffective and unenforceable.   An enforced leash law and a non-breed-specific dog law are more than adequate to police irresponsible dog owners of any breed:
