Update 4/19/11: Saginaw council has delayed the vote on the ordinance in order to revise some language regarding leashes. The issue will be taken up again next month.
Saginaw city council will introduce proposed BSL at the April 18 council meeting. The proposed BSL would restrict ownership of five breeds. According to the badly written ordinance, the five breeds to be restricted are to be determined annually by an unknown entity using a vague and poorly defined data set. This year’s “top five breed list” consists of “pit bull” (not a breed), Bull Mastiff / Presa Canario (two different breeds counted as one), Rottweiler, German Shepherd, Alaskan Malamute, and all mixed breed dogs that resemble one of these breeds.
Residents may comment during the city council meeting, and are encouraged to do so. The council meeting takes place on April 18, 6:30 PM, in City Council Chambers, City Hall. If you wish to speak at the council meeting, please fill out and email this form by 1 PM on April 18.
