Mt. Clemens, MI: City eyes tough rules for pit bulls
Posted on June 19, 2009 by stopbslcom
While "pit bulls" are defined as "dangerous dogs" per the proposed ordinance, the restrictions for merely keeping a "pit bull" in Mt. Clemens would be stricter than keeping a truly dangerous dog (one that has bitten a person). This is despite no reported attacks by "pit bulls" in Mt. Clemens. The proposed ordinance can be viewed here: http://www.cityofmountclemens.com/documents/DANGEROUSANIMALS.2009.pdf

MT. CLEMENS: City eyes tough rules for pit bulls
Mt. Clemens officials want to regulate pit bull ownership, making the city the third in Macomb County to mull preventive steps aimed at the breed.

City officials are reviewing a proposal that would require owners of pit bulls to buy public liability insurance and erect a 6-foot-tall fence around their property or have a kennel. When a pit bull is outside and not confined to a fenced-in yard or kennel, owners would be required to muzzle the dog and have it on a leash.

Although the city hasn't reported any attacks, neighbors have asked for measures to be taken to prevent one. Violators would face up to 90 days in jail and a $500 fine under the proposed ordinance.

Other cities in the county considering ordinances are Eastpointe and Warren.
