    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The author of a new state law that allows felony charges against owners of dangerous dogs was hospitalized over the weekend after his own dog attacked him.



    BOB Schwartz, who also is Gov. Bill Richardson's crime adviser, was hospitalized at University of New Mexico Hospital on Sunday night with bites on both his arms, said Pahl Shipley, a spokesman for the governor.

    A hospital spokeswoman declined to release Schwartz's condition, but Shipley said Schwartz is "going to be fine."

    Schwartz has three dogs registered with the city: a boxer and two English bulldogs, said Denise Wilcox, who oversees Albuquerque's animal care centers.

    Schwartz was instrumental in getting a law passed during this year's regular legislative session that would allow felony charges to be filed against owners of dogs deemed dangerous or potentially dangerous and that seriously injure or kill another animal or person.

    The law was designed to make dog owners accountable, said Sen. Sue Wilson Beffort, who worked with Schwartz to pass the bill.

    "But I guess when it happens in your own family, that's another story," she said. "That's tragic."

    Wilcox said Sunday her office had not received a bite report from University hospital, which is required when a dog bite leads to medical attention.

    No report? That's odd! :rolleyes:

    I wonder if his dogs are in quarantine, like would happen to the rest of us, pending investigation. Doubtful.

    I hope it makes some one question his bill.
