ANIMAL ABUSE REGISTRY PROPOSED IN MICHIGAN - “while his dog had been partially blind before he was burned with a chemical in March, he’s now unable to see anything “
Someone splashed an acid-like substance on Logan the Husky while he was in his yard. Now, his owner is lobbying the Michigan state legislature to create an “animal abuse registry” for the state. If House Bill No. 5402 passes, people who are convicted of animal abuse will be put on a list. If you are on the list you may be prevented from adopting another dog. Here’s the full story from thetimesherald.com:
…someone came and splashed a chemical or acid on Logan’s face as he was in his large outdoor kennel in mid-March…and Falk is offering a reward for any tips that lead to an arrest and conviction.
Falk plans to go to Lansing today to share Logan’s tale with legislators considering a bill that would require an animal abuser registry…Falk said he’d like legislators to take action on the bill, maybe even calling it “Logan’s Law.”
LaFontaine said while Logan’s story was a terrible one, it may be one that resonates at the capitol.Falk said Logan is still the happy dog he’s always been, and is still trusting enough to greet strangers with a nuzzle and a kiss.
A terrible thing happened to Logan, but now his owner is being proactive and trying to protect other animals. There are many hurdles to overcome before this bill is passed, but it is certainly an interesting idea. Despite his injuries, Logan still has beautiful eyes.
