Bernadette, Lady, Henry, Snickers - they don't sound like menacing creatures. But they are among the 35 Minneapolis dogs labeled "dangerous" by the city, a designation intended to protect the public and prod owners to keep a tight leash on their pets. The city has an interactive map showing where these dogs live and what they look like, as well as the name of the owner and the specific transgression: "killed a cat," "animal to human bite," "animal to animal bite," and so on. 

It's a vast improvement on the map of dangerous dogs in Minneapolis and St. Paul that I helped create for our web site back in 2009. (The original map is gone, but there's a blog post about it). That had many more dogs on it, because it included more minor offenders (called potentially dangerous).
