SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Orange County has rejected a proposal to create an online map pinpointing dangerous dogs in more than a dozen cities.

The Orange County Register says the Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday against the proposed website, while agreeing to revise an ordinance that will rank dangerous dogs on a three-tiered system.

Animal Care Services director Ryan Drabek says a dog that attacks another animal or a person will be quarantined while investigators determine the factors that went into the attack and evaluate the dog's punishment.

Drabek will have the power to automatically euthanize a dog after its owner has gone through a court hearing and the dog is determined to be on level three.

Supervisors said they voted against the online map because they were concerned about stigmatizing residents.
