Orange County considers mapping dangerous dogs

SANTA ANA, Calif. -

Orange County is weighing whether to create an online map pinpointing dangerous dogs in more than a dozen cities.

The Board of Supervisors is expected to vote on the issue on Dec. 17. The Orange County Register reports the proposed website would allow residents to see where dogs have been cited in 17 cities.

Orange County Animal Care Director Ryan Drabek tells the newspaper that animal control officers investigate after a dog attack, talk to witnesses and check past records.

Some people think the county should have behavior training for dogs instead of shaming them online.
