Orange County is proposing mapping out places where dogs considered to be dangerous stay.

Orange County is considering creating an online map that shows where dogs considered to be dangerous or vicious are being kept.  The website is described as being like the Megan's Law website that would probably give information on where the dog lives and what it did to get into trouble.

Orange County supervisor Todd Spitzer proposed the website, saying it's important for residents to know where dangerous dogs live. 

Is the map a good idea? What's the criteria for a dog being deemed vicious or dangerous?
