Clampdown on Dangerous Dogs // April 25th, 2012 // Constituency News
As you may be aware the Government has set out its approach to tackling irresponsible dog owners. http://www.defra.gov.uk/news/2012/04/23/clampdown-on-dangerous-dogs/
Claire Robinson, RSPCA Government Relations Manager has set out the RSPCA concerns about the proposals.
“In short the RSPCA feels the proposals ‘lack bite’ and are a real missed opportunity. Indeed the majority of other organisations appeared to have similar responses. http://www.rspca.org.uk/media/news/story/-/article/Dog_ownerhip_April12
While the extension of the law to cover private property is a small step forward, the fact there is no preventative measures means that people and animals will remain at risk.”
“The RSPCA have put up some thoughts about the proposals on their Political Animal Website. I hope that local residents will join in the debate.”
