A Bunch Of Stupid Rules

Dogs that attack other animals, chase children or bite neighbors must now be sterilized, implanted with microchips and confined in cages with warning signs.

But soon, punishment for bad dogs in Manatee County may also include public humiliation for the animals and their owners.

The county plans to post the names, pictures and home addresses of dangerous dogs online, much like the state's sex offender registry.

The dog hating wackos out there are just going too far. Normal dogs will attack other animals, and that doesn’t make them vicious or dangerous. Dogs that bite neighbors won’t become safe in public just by neutering or spaying them… it won’t fix the problems at all. And dogs that chase children aren’t necessarily dangerous… they might just be playing or curious, or the kids are initiating the game.

This garbage has to stop.
