ugh....why is it all the little rich society people cities? oOh yeah cuz they don't live in the real world. Every place almost that has been posted in Michigan and bsl, are total prude square communities. This makes me glad I live in the burbs of Flint Town. GRRRR. we have enough murders by people to hopefully keep bsl at bay. wow that sounded bad but its true.

The meeting last night went extremely well! This was initial discussion only, so there was no official vote on an actual ordinance yet. But seven out of the eight council members (including the Mayor) voiced a preference for looking at toughening up current laws without breed-specific language. Council members were very appreciative of all the emails they received, and comments from advocates that attended last night.

Please send council your thanks, they really put a lot of effort into learning more about this issue before deciding how to proceed.
