Ordinance No. 20191017-025 Section 3-1-1 (20): (20) UNPROVOKED BITING means biting that is not provoked. Biting is unprovoked if, among other things, it occurs during ordinary care, including feeding and placing a collar, leash or harness on a dog, or from merely initiating interaction with a dog, or standing and facing the dog, walking towards a dog or its owner or addressing the dog’s owner. Biting is provoked if, among other things, it occurs because the dog was being taunted, or the dog was acting in defense of self, a person, another animal, or property, or the dog was acting from maternal instinct, or the dog was reacting to hunger, pain, or fear, or the dog bites accidentally, as when playing. To be provoked a biting must occur contemporaneously with or immediately following the provocation. Section 3-1-26 - Add language to (A); (2) has new language; original (2) and (3) become (3) and (4): 3-1-26 NOTICE TO RESCUE ORGANIZATION (A) Not less than two business days before the euthanasia of any animal that does not qualify for exemption under Section C, the City animal shelter must: (C) This section does not apply to: (1) An animal who is irremediably suffering; (2) An animal who, after a high risk assessment, has been recommended for euthanasia for humane reasons or to protect the public from imminent danger to persons or property. Such animal may be euthanized without regard to any time limitations otherwise established in this title and without court order; (3) A dog whose release to a rescue organization would violate a court order; or (4) A dog with a documented history of unprovoked biting that has resulted in severe injury to a person.

CODE REVISION WORKGROUP RECOMMENDATION, SEPTEMBER 2020 MISSION Review of Ordinance 2019107-025 with regard to public safety and animal welfare RECOMMENDATION #1 - REMOVE THE WORD “FEAR” FROM THE YELLOW HIGHLIGHTED SECTION IN 3-1-1 (20), LEAVING IT TO READ AS FOLLOWS: (20) UNPROVOKED BITING means biting that is not provoked. Biting is unprovoked if, among other things, it occurs during ordinary care, including feeding and placing a collar, leash or harness on a dog, or from merely initiating interaction with a dog, or standing and facing the dog, walking towards a dog or its owner or addressing the dog’s owner. Biting is provoked if, among other things, it occurs because the dog was being taunted, or the dog was acting in defense of self, a person, another animal, or property, or the dog was acting from maternal instinct, or the dog was reacting to hunger, pain or the dog bites accidentally, as when playing. To be provoked a biting must occur contemporaneously with or immediately following the provocation. Note: Text in red was approved at the January 2020 Animal Advisory Commission meeting but is still not part of Code. RECOMMENDATION #1 JUSTIFICATION  "Fear" is not a visible action, it is an internal state  It ‘s often difficult to ascertain internal state when a bite occurs (even for trained observers)  Even if we can identify fear as a motivation, that doesn’t mean the dog is “safe”, treatable, or behaving normally  The presence of “fear” in a severe bite situation is far too vague a reason to release a high-risk dog  City law and Mr Bland concur with our recommendation RECOMMENDATION #2 - ADD TEXT HIGHLIGHTED IN YELLOW (A) Not less than two business days before the euthanasia of any animal that does not qualify for exemption under Section C, the City 3-1-26 NOTICE TO RESCUE ORGANIZATION animal shelter must: (C) This section does not apply to: (1) An animal who is irremediably suffering; (2) An animal who, after a high risk assessment, has been recommended for euthanasia for humane reasons or to protect the public from imminent danger to persons or property. Such animal may be euthanized without regard to any time limitations otherwise established in this title and without court order.
