Jail for dog attack owners

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 15 August, 2012 - 9:57 AM
New laws for dog owners will carry heavy jail terms if their dogs attack people.

Dog owners will face the prospect of up to 10 years jail if their pet attacks or kills a person under new legislation that has been introduced to parliament. Paul Murray spoke to Local Government Minister John Castrilli for more detail on the proposed legislation.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Legislation is required and responsible dog ownership should be exercised, but it should be uniform for ALL dogs. To specify breeds will lead to a law becoming a joke.

    As the RSPCA said, "the deed, not the breed". Canada has a more draconian version but it is breed focussed. The breed debate divides the experts - many "bitsas" or mongrels resemble the specified "dangerous breeds" that they have specifcally banned. The relevant court transcripts in Canada make inetresting reading. The Canadians have also shown that more attacks occur with "safe" breeds, such as labradors, than with some banned breeds such as Staffies.

    The Canadians have not banned the bull terrier because their most favoured ice hockey comemnattor owns one and teh public associate him with this breed and believe it to be safe - are we headed for this farce!
