Bill proposed by Kalamazoo lawmaker to curb dangerous dog attacks

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- State House Rep. Sean McCann is proposing legislation in the wake of the fatal mauling of a Lapeer jogger that targets unsafe dogs and their bad behavior, not specific breeds.

Dogs who exhibit aggressive behavior would be entered by the courts into a dangerous dog registry.

Postal employees, delivery men and others would be able to access it.

Once a dog is registered, it would be up to the owners to make sure the animals are not allowed to roam free and harm anyone.

If they do, the owners would be held criminally responsible.

He plans to introduce the bills when lawmakers return this fall.
