The Government of Trinidad and Tobago have decided to implement a Dangerous Dog Act from 1st August 2012.
Firstly there are no statistical records kept here pertaining to dog bites/attacks. Secondly they have listed only 3 breeds of dogs.
Pittbull terrier or any breed from a pittbull terrier, Fila Brasileiro or any breed from a Fila Brasileiro (there are hardly any of these dogs here). Japanese Tosa or any breed from a Japanese Tosa. (There are hardly any of these dogs here).
To own one of the above there will be an insurance of 250,000.00 per dog, plus an annual licensing fee of 500.00 plus the dog has to be spayed or neutered.
If this Act is allowed to be implemented it is aimed directly at Pitt Bulls.
It will be BSL in its purest form.
The Oppose BSL in Trinidad and Tobago petition to The Government of Trinidad and Tobago was written by lesly and is in the category Animal Rights at GoPetition.
