GOVERNOR SIGNS LEGISLATION TOUGHENING PENALTIES AGAINST OWNERS OF VICIOUS DOGS THAT ENDAGER THE PUBLIC

Governor Blagojevich signed new laws toughening the penalties for owners of vicious and dangerous dogs if their pets attack someone. The laws also include the nation's first restrictions banning convicted drug dealers and violent offenders from using dogs as weapons, and increased penalties for dog fighting. House Bill 4238 increases the criminal penalty to a Class 3 felony punishable by up to five years in prison if the owner of a vicious dog fails to keep their dog in an enclosure or fails to spay or neuter the animal and it gets loose and kills or seriously injures someone.

If the owner knowingly allowed the dog to run loose or failed to take steps to keep the animal in an enclosure, the offense is a Class 2 felony, carrying a potential prison term of three to seven years. A dangerous dog, determined by the Illinois Department of Agriculture or local animal control, is a dog the poses a serious threat or has, without justification, bitten a person but does not cause serious physical injury.  A vicious dog, determined by circuit courts, is a dog, that without justification, attacks a person and causes serious physical injury or death or has been found to be a "dangerous dog" on three separate occasions. 

House Bill 2946 prohibits felons convicted of forcible felonies, felonies under the Humane Care for Animals Act, Class 3 felonies under the Illinois Controlled Substances and Cannabis Act, Class 3 felonies under the Methamphetamine Control and Community Protection Act, and felonies under the Deadly Weapons Statue from owning a dog that has not been spayed or neutered.  Additionally, dogs owned by a felon must have a microchip inserted under their skin for identification.  House Bill 4238 is effective immediately and House Bill 2946 becomes a law effective January 1, 2007.
