Emergency Manager Darnell Earley has approved a new ordinance for owners of dogs that attack. According to the Detroit News, Earley signed the revised ordinance last month making the owners of dogs that attack – people or other dogs – subject to penalties of up to 90 days in jail, a fine of at least $250 and a minimum of 240 hours of community service. City Attorney Peter Bade said the ordinance was unchanged from a version that had been approved by the Flint City Council. An earlier proposal was changed however due to it’s singling out of pit bulls. The new ordinance says vicious dogs are a “serious and widespread threat” in Flint. It goes into effect on August 1st.
