DOG owners whose animals bite a burglar could face prosecution under a proposed new law backed by a Gwent AM.
That’s according to the Kennel Club, which says it is seriously concerned about the Welsh Government’s Control of Dogs (Wales) Bill.
The law has been backed by John Griffiths, Newport East AM and Welsh Government environment minister.
Kennel Club communications director Caroline Kisko said: “Whilst we welcome the intention of the Welsh Government to improve legislation surrounding dangerous and out of control dogs, we are seriously concerned about some of the negative implications for perfectly responsible dog owners within the suggested Control of Dogs (Wales) Bill.” The bill is under consultation.
