Courts - "Every horse gets one bite" ruled not the case in Connecticut

See the news reports compiled in this How Appealing post on a Conn. Supreme Court ruling yesterday that held, per the Hartford Courant:

The state Supreme Court concluded Wednesday that the owners of domestic animals must take reasonable steps to prevent them from causing injuries – regardless of where an animal is kept or whether it had ever shown signs of dangerousness.
This is the case where there had been concern among Connecticut horse owners that horses would be presumed to be inherently dangerous.
