“The author of a new state law that allows felony charges against owners of dangerous dogs was hospitalized over the weekend after his own dog attacked him.”

You know, there is an old saying that seems apropos in this situation:

Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.”

How often are these stupid dog laws enacted, and then many dogs are unnecessarily condemned to die?

I’ve seen it. I’ve had customers who had to deal with unjust dog bite laws.

When a terrible attack occurs, politicians run for cover and pass obnoxious and unfair laws to silence the outraged. Then, years pass, and we all have to live with the laws that were passed in the heat of passion.

I have some suggestions: How To Make A Fair Dog Bite Law
