Gov. Tom Corbett has signed legislation offering greater protection to service dogs that assist disabled people. Under the new legislation, dog owners whose dogs attack service dogs may be charged with a third-degree misdemeanor if they knew their dogs were aggressive or had a known history of attacks.
Dog owners charged under the new law may have to pay up to $5,000 in fines, veterinary bills or the replacement and training costs of a new service dog.
