Saginaw city council was to discuss proposed BSL at the May 9 council meeting, but the discussion was delayed. 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,” Bull Mastiff, Presa Canario, Rottweiler, and German Shepherd, and all mixed breed dogs that resemble one of these breeds. Alaskan Malamute has inexplicably been removed from the list based on the most recent correspondence from the city.

Council plans to discuss the proposed ordinance and revisions during a future meeting. The next council meetings are May 23 and June 6.

The term “pit bull,” is not the name of an actual breed.
