Michigan county cracks down on unlicensed dogs

News from The Associated Press: FLINT, Mich. (AP) -- Hey, was that a bark?

With 18 full-time enforcers, a Michigan county is going door-to-door to find dogs that don't have a license, an effort that could raise more than $250,000 in fees this summer.

More than 1,700 dog owners in Genesee County bought licenses during a two-week amnesty when delinquent fees were waived. Now the campaign is getting serious with workers prepared to sell licenses on the spot or write tickets in the county 50 miles north of Detroit.
Local governments are really scraping to bring in every dime of potential revenue.
