Macomb - The city has had 5 dog attacks on people and dogs in the last 6 months including a fatal mauling of a dog by a pit bull that broke through a fence for the express purpose of killing little yorkie being walked on a leash in front of his terrified and traumatized owner.
The mayor has said he wants to prevent the kind of fatal mauling attack that happened to Ryan Maxwell. Though, the proposed ordinance has some good elements, it will do nothing to prevent a first attack:
Increased fines for owners of dogs who repeatedly violate city ordinances.
Muzzling and maybe euthanizing a dog that's been deemed dangerous.
And a creation of a vicious dog registry.
