I disagree: politicians and government do not propose or create public safety oriented legislation out of a vacuum. The root cause is always some jackass who calls attention to a potential problem in the first place by engaging in irresponsible, antisocial behaviors and/or activities.

In this case the animal owner had a long history of being a jerk. Of course the citizens in the area were frightened: they had been endangered by the sociopath down the road, in the end, very deliberately endangered.

And we the taxpayers have had to pay for behavior like his. More regulation, more taxpayer money spent on enforcement, taxpayer dollars paying to clean up these fiascoes.

So many people here seem to have a hard-on for the HSUS, and yet are so willing to ignore the conditions that led to the creating of organizations like HSUS in the first place.

Spare me the misplaced indignation.
