Harsh law to govern dog bites
The city’s bringing in some harsh new guidelines according to which a dog will be put down if it bites a person or even another dog, unless the owner can find a credible character witness within 24 hours. I find this a bit extreme, even though I’ve never had a dog and find large, poorly controlled dogs kind of scary.
There’s also talk in that item about pitbulls and a more detailed discussion as well, mentioning that plenty of other breeds are known to get just as bitey. It also doesn’t help that the category of pitbull isn’t well defined – it’s not a specific dog breed.
