DogBite.org proposes modifications to the “Dangerous Dog” or “Potentially Dangerous Dog” statutes which give discretion to California animal control authorities to make such findings. Instead, it is proposed that the public also be given the legal standing to file the dangerous dog petition and potentially dangerous dog petitions in the superior court. Also it is proposed that one dog bite instead of two dog bites fact findings result in potentially dangerous dogs and judicial discretion in applying the penalties.
