2007: Dangerous Pet & Breed Specific Legislation

THLN successfully opposed the proposed regulation of "dangerous" pets (SB 349, 2007).  The subject bill was far too broad and gave no criteria for what is or is not a dangerous pet.  The "dangerous" designation would have been left to the discretion of the county commissioners' court and could have lead to abuses of power and to breed specific legislation.
