I came across this article today. A prisoner was participating in a program that trains dogs as service dogs. There are a number of such programs across the country and I think it is often a good thing for both the dogs and the prisoners.
But in this case, the dog bit the prisoner training him. Turns out the dog had a history of biting and the people in charge of this program knew it.
And they were planning to give this dog, that they knew had a history of biting, to a disabled people as a service dog. And the dog would have likely bitten his disabled handler or a member of the public when the dog was taken into public.
Why on earth would you plan to place an aggressive dog as a service dog? I'm sorry the prisoner was bitten but I am glad he won his case and I hope it makes whoever is in charge of this program reconsider trying to train aggressive dogs as service dogs. That is dangerous to everyone.
