There seems to be frequent news, from around the country, about aggressive dogs attacking humans. It is time to strengthen laws to hold dog owners responsible in the event of a dog attack.
The safety of human beings, from children to senior citizens, must be the highest priority. It is shocking to hear about reported cases of careless pet owners whose aggressive dogs caused severe and even life-threatening harm to people in the community. Aggressive dogs, such as pit bulls, have been known to attack their owners too. In fact, President Biden’s German shepherd dog has also bitten and injured people.
Dogs such as pit bulls, German shepherds, and rottweilers do not belong in the hands of careless owners. These dogs, along with some other large and vicious dogs, have been known to cause physical harm to people.
It is time for elected officials to strengthen laws to ensure that careless dog owners are held liable for harm caused by their pets. There must be strong penalties imposed on negligent dog owners.
