Dog attacks are terrifying and we need harsh penalties to punish those who allow their dog to injure people while out of control.
We’re already toughening up laws to ensure that anyone who owns a dangerous dog can be brought to justice, regardless of where a dog attack takes place. It’s crucial that the laws we have in place act as a deterrent to stop such horrific incidents and people who do the right thing and play by the rules.
Chester Liberal Democrats Chairperson, Mark A Williams, said, “I welcome the news that Libdems in government are toughening up laws on dangerous dogs to make the owners more responsible. It’s often said that it’s not the dogs fault but the owners and in a fair society the owners are held to account.”
