    That is a bit scary... esp (2) Subsection (1) applies whether or not the dog is registered or the owner is identifiable. And it is all based on their assesment at th time. So many factors can contribute to a dog looking "dangerous" not in the least that a lot of people think big dogs=dangerous to stat with!

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    cross posted with permission from the OTHER forum:

    Send letters to parliament:

    Although individual letters are the best, I acknowledge that some people find that too hard (time poor; don't like writing letters .... mind you, I don't particularly like to write them either).

    So what I propose here is that every person who wants to help in at least one way could write a simple covering letter - something like the following :

    Covering email letter :

    "Dear Parliamentary Member

    I support and endorse the objections and content encompassed in the attached response to Government by Good for Dogs and would ask that you not only accept these points as though they were my own writing, but also take on board and heed the refutes and information it provides, as though it was I who was the author – BEFORE the
    Government proceeds to passing of yet even more laws that are flawed and which have the tendency to target the responsible people and not those who are the mainstay causes for community interference by their own dogs; and which do NOT and have not had any effect on the lowering of bite statistics; nor which embraces the ideology of “education”.
    Yours Sincerley
    NAME
    ADDRESS
    EMAIL “


    Attachment to email :

    With your email, attach the GoodforDogs response - the link for this is http://www.goodfordogs.org/blog/wp-c...se_to_Bill.pdf .

    And this is the Member of Legislative Assembly contact list which will give you all the names, addresses and email addresses you can send to (the more the merrier).

    Legislative Assembly (Vic) Member Contact List

    Of course, the "GoodforDogs" well thought out response may actually make sense to you of what the proposals are and how they are likely to (adversively) affect us, to the degree that you might like to take from that and formulate your own individual response. That would be great, but at the very least, please respond to Government one way or the other. Better something than nothing at all.

    Cheers, and let's band together to fight this now. Once the law is passed the effort to change it when we see and experience the wrongs that it will cause, will be a far greater task than the one at hand.

    Just recieved an email from William Sykes this bill will be pasted on Thursday with no further debate. The amendments will be presented to the upper house on July 27th.

    All is not over yet... Please send letters to the upper house now and stop the changes to the Victorian legislation
