An ordinance passed in College Park, GA to register “dangerous dogs” is said to be in the interest of public safety. According to a story on CBS Atlanta:
“College Park officials will enact a “dangerous dog” registry next month that some critics say is very close to canine profiling. Residents owning dogs that have, without provocation, bitten someone during the last 12 years, will be required to register their pet with the city clerk’s office. Pit bull, Doberman, Rottweiler and German shepherd owners, will also have to register their dogs whether they have ever attacked someone or not.”
What do you think? Should dog owners pay extra money because they own a certain breed, even when their individual dog has never harmed anyone? Are there dangerous dogs or just negligent owners?
