Smallvoice...what is being asked is "legislation requiring online alerts when anyone is convicted of having a dangerous dog."...being licensed has no requirement when someone is convicted of having a dangerous dog, you have a dog licensed or not and have a record off attacking and and convicted......People have the right to know the general area of where not to walk your dog, and to be on alert of this being a dangerous area, just on the record of convictions of that person having a dangerous dog in that area. If I know there is a dangerous dog on this particular street...I am not going to walk my dog on that street, plain and simple. It was clearly stated in the piece.
