Legislation would crack down on irresponsible pet owners

LANSING (WKZO) -- State Representative Sean McCann's introduced legislation in the Michigan House that would increase the penalties on people whose dogs attack someone. The plan was first proposed by former State Representative Robert Jones in 2010, but wasn't advanced after Jones passed away.

McCann's taken it up, saying that this is not specifically targeted at pitbulls, but at any kind of dog and its owner who fails to protect others.

Under the bill, the owner of an animal that has shown aggressive behavior can be held accountable if it's not restrained. It also gives animal control officers a system of warnings and fines that can be issued to someone who doesn't properly deal with a potentially dangerous dog.
