Description

WESH-TV found that there are about 1300 dog bites every year in Orange County, Florida and Orange County Animal Control ignored state law and looked the other way. State law requires animal control to conduct a dangerous dog investigation after vicious attacks, but it was discovered that animal control didn't have a dangerous dog investigation in more than two years. Furthermore, the dangerous dog investigator doesn't review all dog bite cases, only those referred to her by her staff.
