Thread: 10 Years

  1. #1

    Default 10 Years

    I just heard on the radio when I was coming home for letting Murphy have a play with a friends dog.
    It said that anyone who owns a dog that happens to kill anyone the owners will now be in line for a 10 year jail sentence.
    It has just been past by the goernment the radio fella said.

    Its Pretty scary to be honest, in the end no one knows if their dog may just crack it one day and kill someone.

    Even a "Pug" can get you in the right place and kill you.

    That is just ridiculous.

    10 years jail for animal cruelty fine, but not for a dog attack, there are some circumstances that can't be avoided.

    Not sure, but think they are talking about dangerous/restricted dogs only.

    To me, that implies that the owners should already be aware of the obligations to prevent such an attack or death and the consequences involved.

    "Four new offences will be created for failing to prevent a dangerous, menacing or restricted dog breed from endangering a life or causing death."

    Not sure how a menacing dog fits into this situation. The following paragraphs don't mention that term or or it's definition.

    I think this means as it is.
    Any dog that causes a death to a human will face the 10 years.
    Not just the dangerous/restricted breeds.
    So this is any dog even my dog Murphy a ACD.

    I think this is what they are proposing.

    I think it is about the same as leaving a loaded gun lying around where people or children can get it.

    While I don't think (fear of) punishment is a good way to train people to do the right thing, I also think someone who lets his dog roam freely, and it hurts or kills a child or person, should be held responsible as if he hurt or killed the child or person. I don't think irresponsible owners should be allowed to avoid accountability for this.

    I don't think the punishment should be the same for a person who makes every effort to do the right thing by their dog and the community with training and socialization and keeping the safe dog at home. Ie they should not be held responsible if the dog eats the burglar. That would be the burglar's fault.

    I think they'd be partially responsible if the tradie lets the dog out and it causes harm. Ie if owner knows the tradie is due, they should take steps to secure the dog from the tradie, ie you can bet the gardener/lawnmower man or tradie is going to leave the gate open. Probably the gas meter reader too - but they're supposed to knock first if you have a dog sign on the gate. I've had one come in and go read the meter ignoring sign and dog (going nuts but keeping her distance). Dunno how he knew the difference between a dog that was going to eat him and one that just barks. I don't always know which Frosty is going to be in her own yard.

    If the gas meter reader leaves the gate unlatched or open, he's going to find it locked next time.

    The article is for dangerous dogs. all dangerous dogs have to be registered etc and if you dont take precautions and it kills/injures someone that is your fault.
    I dont think you could be sent to jail for 10 years if a little chiuhuhua bit somebodys face etc.

    If You have a dangerous dog and it gets out and kills someone then you deserve twenty years in Jail to be honest.

    In saying that these days to have you dog declared dangerous is easier then cutting your toe nails FFS!
