Macon-Bibb commissioners share thoughts on health board’s ‘dangerous dogs’ ruling

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Two Macon-Bibb commissioners are sharing their thoughts on the Board of Health’s decision to uphold the county’s Animal Welfare’s classification of a Macon woman’s dogs as “dangerous.”

Commissioners Elaine Lucas and Bert Bivins serve on the Board of Health.

Lucas said she voted against the classification because she wasn’t convinced the witnesses proved which dogs were actually involved in the attack on December 29th. 

Bivins explained after carefully considering the entire situation, he voted in favor of the classification. 

“There was some questions about how thorough the investigation was, but taking in everything that everybody said, I thought that that was what it amounted to,” said Bivins. 

Macon attorney Veronica Brinson is the owner of the three dogs deemed dangerous after they attacked a man and a woman and killed their dog.

41NBC reached out to Brinson for comment, but we haven’t heard back yet.

Brinson can choose to appeal the Board of Health’s decision.
