British may be making it illegal for dogs to bite burglars
[The] Control of Dogs (Wales) Bill contains the provision for owners to be jailed for that period if a dog injuries another pet or a person, and to be given an unlimited fine.Of course, but the people in charge of that body of government are so insane and uncaring you can't expect them to recognize a person's right to defend their property from intruders.
The current Animal Welfare Act provides for owners to be jailed for a maximum of six months and fined up to £20,000.
The draft legislation, out to consultation until March 1, provides no defence if a dog bites a burglar, or if the person bitten provokes the dog.
The Kennel Club believes the Welsh Government had "got this one wrong".
Dog owners do have a responsibility with their pets, but they also have the right to guard their property and isn't owning a guard dog part of that?
