    St. Paul passes law targeting problem dog owners

    St. Paul pet owners cited more than once for abusing or neglecting an animal can't legally own another pet under an ordinance the City Council passed today.
    The council's unanimous vote came just two days after two pit bulls attacked a woman in Dayton's Bluff. The law itself was in the works for weeks.
    The ordinance targets owners who train dogs to fight, puppy mill operators and pet owners shown to be irresponsible or negligent.
    Under the new ordinance, problem dog owners can't register a new animal if their dogs are removed twice in a five-year span. Owners can appeal a license denial. Existing city law requires all dogs more than 3 months old to have a license, which costs $50 a year, or $10 annual for spayed or neutered pets. A lifetime license is $60 with proof of a microchip implant.

    Wish more cities would do this instead of banning breeds.
