Jenny Marracalls for review of dangerous dog laws
18 September 2013
Speaking after Justice Minister Kenny MacAskill ruled out a review of dog laws following a number attacks across the country, Jenny Marra MSP said:
“I think the public would feel safer if our law was designed to prevent dangerous dog attacks rather than deal with the consequences.
“I think it’s time for the Scottish Government to consider preventative action – muzzling and lead requirements.
“How many more attacks will it take for the Scottish Government to take action on this?
“Their current law, which just reacts to an attack, isn’t even being used by Dundee City Council.
“It’s time the Scottish Government reviewed dog law.
“The current laws are not keeping children safe from dangerous dogs.”
