Concern with Proposed Changes to PA Dangerous Dog Law

We believe the current Dangerous Dog Law is good, if properly enforced, and with increased public education on its use. As a compromise, we will not oppose the language that would label a dog dangerous after its first bite involving injury or death. However, in return we want the language automatically charging the owner or keeper with harboring a dangerous dog in this instance, dropped.
Senator Killion's staff and Senate Ag Committee staff seem to be unwilling to compromise, so this will likely pass the Senate Ag Committee. Contact your PA State Senators now to voice your concerns with SB798.
