Department of Primary Industry Survey On Proposed Changes to The Victorian Domestic Animal Legislation

To all Members of GSDCV Inc. **note that this survey has now closed

As you are probably now aware, the Victorian Minister for Primary Industry, Mr. Joe Helper, has initiated an online survey through the DPI website, asking the public for their opinions on some proposed changes to the Victorian Domestic Animal Legislation. The proposed changes generally are intended to increase the penalties for dogs which are currently deemed dangerous, and are found at large or are not registered with their local Council. The proposals however, include rather extreme powers being granted to Council Officers, which would include the ability to seize such a dog and order its immediate euthanasia without further consultation of the dog's owner.

Information about the proposed legislation changes on the Government websites can be seen here:
