EMPIRE, Mich. (AP) - A 69-year-old woman is serving a 15-day jail sentence in northern Michigan for failing to control her German shepherd.

He says it’s “outrageous” that there have been more than a dozen incidents of her dog running loose in and around the village of Empire, 30 miles west of Traverse City.

The sheriff noted the fatal mauling of a jogger last year in Lapeer County. Those owners were sent to prison this week.
