Westchester County tightens leash on dangerous dogs
Westchester County officials are starting a new registry to keep the public informed about animals that are deemed to be a threat.Owners who think their dog?s bad behavior can be kept quiet could now be exposed. Beginning in March, canines that are deemed trouble by a judge will be put on the county's Dangerous Dog Registry. The listings will contain a description of the dog, the owner's address, the dog?s name and the owner?s name. Local courts will use regulations set by the New York State Department of Agriculture, as well as reports made by the county's health department to determine what dogs make the list.
