Dog Bites Problems and Solutions By Janis Bradley
A cogent and common-sense discussion of this highly charged and poorly understood issue. Author Janis Bradley (DOGS BITE: BUT BALLOONS AND SLIPPERS ARE MORE DANGEROUS) puts dog bites in a realistic public health perspective, and discusses which measures will reduce the incidence of dog bites. Breed-specific legislation is not effective in enhancing community safety. Rather, education, responsible ownership and robust dangerous ownership ordinances have produced the best results. This paper is indispensable for communities that want to improve their local animal ordinances.
