Law Against Unlicensed Dogs Repealed

Michigan lawmakers voted to repeal a state law requiring county sheriff’s to “locate and kill” unlicensed dogs. The state Senate voted yesterday to approve legislation that eliminates the requirement that sheriffs kill unlicensed dogs and that county treasurers deliver a list of unlicensed dogs to the director of the state agriculture agency. The House passed the same measure last May. Critics say the 94-year old law is antiquated and currently not enforced. The bill now heads to Governor Rick Snyder for his signiture.
