KNOXVILLE - The Knox County Sheriff's Office has created a map that displays the locations of dogs deemed dangerous by a court order.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports that the interactive map comes complete with links to the address, owner and incident report. It even includes a photo of the animal.

The sheriff's office says the aim of the map is to raise awareness about dangerous dogs, to educate the public and to make neighborhoods safer for people and other animals.

The office says all the owners of the 14 dogs currently listed are taking steps toward getting their pets off the list.
