Solicitor calls for ban on Japanese dog breed (UK)

Solicitor calls for ban on Japanese dog breed Dec 12 2006


Paul Rowland, Western Mail

A CAMPAIGNING Welsh solicitor has called on the Government to ban an exotic breed of dog after they were involved in a spate of attacks on children.

The Japanese hunting dog, or akita, is proving increasingly popular among owners in the UK, despite a tendency towards violence, particularly towards young people.

The breed was originally used to hunt bears in Japan, and is regarded among dog experts as being prone to unpredictable behaviour.

A teenage girl in Hartlepool suffered serious arm injuries after being mauled by one of the dogs last week, in a case reminiscent of an attack last year on a toddler near Carmarthen.

Two-year-old Anna Knuckles was left needing more than 100 stitches, after the dog pounced on her outside the house of her neighbours in Llansteffan in June last year.

He gave the dog a piece of pizza and went to go get his water dish for him came back with it and gt too close wile he was still eating. Food aggression is not alowed in my house!!

I really believe that people should be vetted, especially regarding the "stronger" breeds.

There is a lot of muppets at the mo having Presas to guard their illegal stashes etc. This breed i`m sure will be banned again at some point. It`s about time common sense prevailed.
