I think that similar to human cases, probable cause should be the standard. Obviously many elements of having similar standards of human court proceedings would'nt be possible (jury of peers, right to face accusers etc) however I think that people who own animals need to bear responsibility for their actions, especially in cases involving violence against people or other animals. In the area I live, just this past summer 2 people were mauled to death by 2 dogs that lived on a nearby farm. The case is still pending, however, the owner of the farm had in excess of 10 dogs who frequently escaped thier fenced yard. Although they had not be violent in the past, the fact that they had escaped the yard in the past and now were responsible for the deaths of 2 people cannot be overlooked. There needs to be serious repercussions for irresponsibility that results in injurues. These dogs were proven responsible and euthanized.

This is pretty interesting. I like the fact that some citys have these laws to keep us safe, but we wouldent have these problems if people had enough sence in the first place to train thier dogs against agresivenes.

It should be a given that the owners of said dogs, has a right to prove that their dog is innocent!

The sad thing is that the responsible people are being punished for the unresponsible people. The real losers are the dogs.

Sarcastically speaking, why doesn't the government confiscate dogs that are under suspicion just a little

Then dog owners would never probably hear from their companion dogs again based on this callous injustice!

No dog should be considered dangerous unless it is actually seen attacking someone or another animal.
