Animal abuse registry proposed in dog's memory

(WALES TOWNSHIP) -- The owner of a husky that died last year after someone sprayed acid on its face is pushing a bill in the Michigan Legislature that would track animal abusers. Matt Falk of Wales Township hopes his dog Logan's memory will raise awareness of animal abuse and track people convicted of the crime. Two bills known as "Logan's Law" have been introduced in the Michigan House by Republican State Representative Paul Muxlow of Brown City and Democratic Representative Harvey Santana of Detroit. The bills would start a registry of animal abusers and block convicted abusers from adopting animals.  Costs to start the registry would be about $10,000 and be paid for by the Animal Defense League Fund.
