Wexford County eyeing animal control ordinance amendments

Posted on July 18th, 2013 No Comments

Wexford County Animal Shelter’s board of commissioners is considering a revision of its animal control ordinance and is asking public input in the revision process.

One of the main points that the board of commissioners is trying to change is the automatic power given to the Wexford County Sheriff to oversee the animal control program. If the revision is adopted, the board will be able to assign that function to any county department.

The ordinance revision is an offshoot of a complaint from a Wexford County Animal Shelter employee six months earlier that animals weren’t being properly euthanized in the shelter.

A state investigation was not able to find conclusive evidence that the claim is true; however, the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development did find record keeping discrepancies.

County Administrator Ken Hinton said that as of Monday, July 15, Monday, a group called CARE from Wexford County had already submitted their insights.

Unfortunately, despite animal ordinances and laws, many people each year are bit by dogs in Michigan due to their owners’ negligence. If this has happened to you, call a lawyer from Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE today to discuss pursuing compensation.
