Hornell, NY: Attack should prompt dog law review

Hornell, NY: Attack should prompt dog law review
Posted on June 24, 2009 by stopbslcom
Hornell, NY passed BSL in 2003 against “pit bulls” which involves special registration and $100,000 in liability insurance. Apparently this law is not being enforced.

It is unclear whether officials intend to introduce a ban on “pit bulls,” or whether they intend to start enforcing the BSL they currently have. Both are suggested in the article below.

Hogan: Attack should prompt dog law review

Hornell, N.Y. -

Hornell officials think they might need to look at its dangerous dog laws again following an attack on two children Friday.

Hornell Mayor Shawn Hogan said at Monday night’s Common Council meeting the city’s dangerous dog laws need to be enforced.

“There is a tendency for a knee-jerk reaction,” Hogan said, referring to many municipalities across the country banning some breeds of dogs after attacks.

The discussion Monday was prompted by a double attack Friday afternoon on Fairview Avenue, when two at-large pit bulls attacked an 8-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl who were playing down the street. Hogan said quick actions by residents and Hornell police helped save the children from further injuries. Police captured the dogs and charged their owners with 20 offenses relating to the dogs and licensing. The dogs are being held at the Hornell Humane Society.

“They (police) showed restraint,” Hogan said, referring to a report in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle about police officers shooting dogs. “They have shot 87 dogs in the City of Rochester.”

This is not the first time the Common Council has had to deal with dangerous dogs, Hogan said.

“In 2003, the city tried to deal with the problem,” he said, adding the law passed then requires the owners of dangerous dogs to have a $100,000 liability insurance policy in place. The bill was met by stiff opposition and is not generally enforced.

“They (attorneys) suggested we enforce this from now on and have it tested in the courts,” Hogan said.

The city also could have a new dog census done, which will update the city’s dangerous dog roster and force many dog owners to license their animals. The last dog census was 7 years ago, the mayor added.

Hogan added landowners are technically liable for a dog attack by their tenants’ dogs on their property, and suggested landlords check to see if their tenants have dangerous dogs.
