'Dog Absos' should be introduced across Britain in order to keep aggressive pets under control, according to the British Veterinary Association.Because the human ASBO scheme has been such a rip-roaring success, it’s just got to work well with dogs too, right?
Under the plan, specific dangerous dogs and their owners would be targetted with anti-social behaviour orders in the same way as individuals are.
Councils would be able to issue restrictions on dog owners who did not control their pets, forcing them to control the dog using a muzzle, a leash or by having them neutered.Oh, super!
Those that failed to do so could face a hefty fine.
Surely the sort of people who own these dogs and let them menace other animals and people will be the sort to pay their fines...
This can't fail, I tell you!
