Only a couple of families have taken advantage of a new service available at a Saginaw funeral home: Drive-thru viewings.
A spokesperson for Leader Dogs for the Blind says it was against the law for a taxi company in Saginaw to have denied a blind woman and her service dog a ride.
Paradise Funeral Chapel Director Ivan Phillips said that the concept started when an elderly woman was unable to attend her husband’s funeral.
The drive-through allows people who might not otherwise visit the funeral home to honor the deceased notes the funeral director.
“Do I worry about dogs now more than before? Yeah, I do. But I can’t let it get to me. And I don’t. That’s the attitude I’ve got to have,” he said.
Witnesses were unable to help the man because the home, which hasn’t been occupied in years, was swarming with bees.
A U.S. Department of Agriculture employee spent nearly two weeks tracking the dogs.
A Saginaw County Circuit Judge says she plans to issue a minimum sentence of 8 years, 4 months for manslaughter.
The sheriff’s department says the pack is believed to include seven to 12 dogs, at least two of which are adults.
The Republican-written spending plan affects many corners of life — from how much it costs to attend a university to how many state troopers patrol the highways.
