Mt. Clemens, Michigan to Consider Breed-Specific Ordinance for “Pit Bulls”
From the Detroit Free Press:
City officials are reviewing a proposal that would require owners of pit bulls to buy public liability insurance and erect a 6-foot-tall fence around their property or have a kennel. When a pit bull is outside and not confined to a fenced-in yard or kennel, owners would be required to muzzle the dog and have it on a leash.
Although the city hasn’t reported any attacks, neighbors have asked for measures to be taken to prevent one. Violators would face up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine under the proposed ordinance.
