Sentencing Delayed, Proposal Meeting, and NOT a Pit Bull

Sentencing delayed for woman convicted in March 2009 pit bull attack

Saginaw County Circuit Judge Janet M. Boes was scheduled to sentence Shamorrow S. Amos today, but the sentencing date was postponed until July 13 at prosecutors’ request.

The jury also convicted Anthony D. Hunt, 34, of four of the counts and acquitted him of two of the counts. VanLanHam, who lives across the street two houses south of Amos’ former house on the Buena Vista Township side, came to the aid of his life-long friend and was attacked.

Because Boes did not remand Amos to jail prior to her sentencing, it’s unlikely Amos will be sent to prison.
Here is an update on the Butte pit bull tethering proposal.

As we reported last week, Commissioner Terry Schultz is proposing an ordinance to tether or leash pit bulls.  Now opponents of this proposed ordinance are meeting tonight to formulate an argument against it to bring to commissioners. 
Schultz has proposed a $100 fine on a first offense and $250 fine and loss of animal on the second offense.  The proposed ordinance has been moved to the judiciary committee who will discuss it at tomorrow night's meeting. 
And Samantha Collier, owner of All About the Dawg dog daycare, has arranged tonight’s meeting for people to share their feelings and ideas and she says it's not just for pit bull owners but all dog owner.
"We’ll talk about different solutions people might have to the dog problems here in Butte. It's not just a pit bull problem, we have a dog problem at large looking for suggestions and what we can take to the commissioners to make Butte a stronger community especially for our animals," she said.
The meeting is tonight from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.  at the Butte Plaza Mall in the room across from the office and restrooms.

Town orders DOG to be euthanized

Actually, that is not what the title says on this article but it should. The article states, “18-month-old pitbull and black lab mix named Peter.” That is not a pit bull. They probably don’t even know what it is mixed with. This is the kind of stuff that irks me.
