UK: Legislation Proposed that Would Replace 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act
Pressure is mounting in the United Kingdom to repeal the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act, which banned many breeds of dog. Lord Redesdale has proposed legislation that would replace the Dangerous Dogs Act. The legislation states in part that,
Banning certain types of dogs…has done nothing but make these banned breeds and their lookalikes status symbols and penalised responsible owners of these types and the dogs themselves…
It’s about time that worthless piece of legislation, the Dangerous Dogs Act, was done away with. Hopefully, legislation replacing it will be more sensible.
