Dog laws bite back
May 02, 2010 12:01am
The laws will bring Tasmania into line with other states and the restricted status means all pure-bred pit bulls, even ones which have not bitten, will be treated like dangerous dogs and must be de-sexed.
In public, they will have to be muzzled, wear warning collars in red and yellow, be controlled by an adult and be kept on a short lead.
Owners must put approved signs on their gates warning the public there is a restricted dog and there will be controls on selling and buying pit bulls.[…]
Of the state’s 98 dogs declared to be dangerous, only 13 are American pit bulls, supporting Mr Rigby’s prediction that restricting the breed will not lead to a significant decline in dog bites.
