Reader Says Village Police Department should Set up a “potentially dangerous dog advisory board”
What about cats? Where is this going to stop? I think the Mayor should start a potentially dangerous dog advisory board.( PDDAB)
The police should identify “potentially dangerous” residents or their kids and charge them accordingly
I think a “potentially dangerous dog advisory board” would be great if there appeared to be an overall problem with dangerous dogs in Ridgewood. Does this kind of situation exist to the degree that an advisory board would be of benefit? I’m not so sure.
How many attacks by dangerous dogs have their been? I’m certain that the Ridgewood Police Dept. would be aware if there were a potential problem with a specific dog. In that case, I could see the pet owner being subjected to fines or confiscation of a dangerous animal. But $700 for licensing a dog that has yet to pose a danger, based solely on it’s breed seems unreasonable.
