If the dog bites WITHOUT command, then I do think it should be quarantined. Granted, they are trained to attack. But NO ONE can guarantee an animal's actions, so if they don't do as commanded/trained, they should be investigated.
It's my understanding that when a police dog bites without a command to bite, it is the handlers or the suspects fault and not the dogs. Only so much can be expected of a dog under these situations.
The bill makes sense. It's opponents do not! Let's quarantine the opponents!
rogue, your missing the point. It has nothing to do with the bite, has to do with vaccinations and up to date check ups, which K-9's do on a regular basis. They are healthier than most people.
If there were a question as to the dogs health and possible transmission of disease to the bitten suspect, the dog would be put in isolation for ten days as per state law. The 3 day quarantine is unwarranted, unjustified, uncalled-for, and just plain silly.
I thought that would draw out Dale! Actually, I do agree with the bill! Dale asked for my answers in the Dog leash article. I've yet to see his opinion.
