Animal rights group claims “breed discrimination” over Flint City proposed law

Posted on November 12th, 2013 No Comments

A proposed law by a Flint City councilman to require pitbulls to be listed in a registry is being opposed by an animal rights group in Utah, according to a report published on Tuesday, November 5.

Under the proposed ordinance of Sheldon Neeley, pitbull owners could be slapped with a $500 fine and three months of imprisonment if their dog attacks another person. Utah-based animal group Best Friends Animal Society’s Attorney Ledy VanKavage said the proposed law will punish innocent dogs and raises breed discrimination. He also added that the law will be futile and expensive for the city.

In Flint City, dangerous dogs are currently required to have a muzzle and leash when in public. Pitbull owners are also given instructions to register their pets to the city clerk, secure insurance in case of an attack incident, and to put a “beware of dogs” sign outside their house.
