Minneapolis to impose $200 fine for unlicensed pets

The city of Minneapolis intends to impose a $200 fine to pet owners with unlicensed dogs or cats, according to the Star Tribune.

This after the city implemented incentives to have owners license their pets, but the intended effect has not "paid off the way Minneapolis had hoped."

The proposal for the fee won unanimous proposal from a City Council committee on Wednesday.

One reason behind the incentives and now penalties is because licensed pets are three times more likely to be returned to their owners than non-licensed pets, according to Twin Cities Daily Planet.
