    Default Info needed!

    Okay guys, so for one of my classes i have to do an oral presentation on my opinion of a recent issue that has been discussed in the news.
    Of course i chose to focus on the new pit bull laws in Victoria. So what i'm asking is if you guys could bombard me with any info you have that would be awesome Eg. links to articles about it, any personal stories you have (even relating to the discrimination of other bull breeds), Videos, photos, anything that relates to the topic really.
    Thanks in advance guys!

    there's a facebook page about it with links to the lawyers stuff about what they've done.

    They're getting dogs off one by one, the dogs that have done nothing wrong. But it takes months and a fair bit of money to achieve.

    Personal Story

    I would rather drive my dog to QLD for dog training seminars than go to the ones (with the same presenters) in Victoria. Ie and extra 3000km into a tick prone place just because I don't want to risk my Animal Welfare League un ANKC pedigree dog to the VCAT lock up.

    The actual law - as best I can tell says all dogs in Victoria have to be registered in Victoria - there is no exception for dogs that do not normally live in Victoria or belong to tourists or travellers. So every grey nomand can have their JRT taken by VCAT with the current rules.

    Thanks for the link Hyacinth
    and i can relate to you with the traveling! i didn't know that any dog in victoria has to be registered here! Thats ridiculous! Are other states like that? cause i've always wanted to travel with my dogs... but it would be frustrating if other states had laws like that!!

    I think in SA - if your dog is residing in one place that's not a boarding kennel - then you have to get it registered there, but that's a bit hard to enforce. Ie I wanted to leave my dog with a friend for 4 weeks while I was on holidays and that council receptionist expected me to get her registered there, even tho she's registered at my place and that's what her microchip says, and I'd given my regular council some notes about what to do if they ended up with her. Tho the RSPCA and AWL both have my contact details so hopefully they'd contact me direct if somehow she got out and ended up with them.

    I think the usual rules is you don't have to get the dog registered at your place instantly. But the Victorian dog and cat management rules are the hardest to figure out. Even simple things like where dogs are supposed to be on lead, or anything about harassing other creatures/humans etc. Most other states - it's all laid out in a nice straight forward manner that covers everything. Victorian stuff it's like they put down words and paragraphs on a deck of cards and then played 52-pick up and used that order to write their act.
