County threatens to execute dogs as it bans owners from walking their pets in public

DOG 02A county in Yunnan province is banning pet owners from walking their dogs in public and imposing heavy punishments on those caught violating the rules in order to prevent canine conflicts.
 

Weixin County’s new pet policy stipulates that dogs must be kept in their owners’ homes at all times and not taken outdoors, local media reported Sunday. People caught violating the rule three times will have their dogs confiscated and killed by the local public security bureau.

DOG 03A county official surnamed Wu said that the new rule was introduced due to an uptick in pet-related conflicts and disputes among residents. She said locals have been bitten by dogs unaccompanied by their owners, and that there was a recent scuffle between a sanitation worker and a pet owner after the latter’s pooch pooped in a public space.
 

In recent years, conflicts and disputes involving pet dogs have repeatedly made headlines in China. In 2018, a woman in the eastern city of Hangzhou was severely injured by a dog owner after she tried to shoo the animal away from her son. And in August, an 88-year-old woman in the southern Guangdong province died after tripping over a leash, prompting the dog’s owner to flee the scene.
 

There have also been several incidents in which people have reportedly killed pet dogs following disputes. However, in the absence of a specific law pertaining to household pets, many of these cases do not result in judicial action.
 

Domestic media said that they’re looking into the new rule after receiving negative feedback.
 

城区禁止遛狗第3次直接捕杀?

11月13日云南威信县新出台的犬只管理规定引发舆论关注。
 

11月13日,威信县公安局、住建局、农业农村局和市场监督管理局等4部门联合发布的《关于威信县文明养犬、禁止遛狗的通告》称,为加强威信县城市规划区养犬的管理工作,倡导市民文明规范养犬行为,根据相关法律法规并结合威信县实际情况,规定市民必须对所养犬只实行栓养或圈养,如不按要求进行栓养或圈养的,一旦发现,第一次、第二次给予警告和罚款,第三次联系公安机关予以捕杀。
 

威信县新的犬只管理规定出台后,引发舆论关注。有评论认为,当地规定犬只必须进行栓养、圈养还能理解,但一刀切地禁止在县城内遛狗就是一种懒政行为了。
 

威信县城多位民众表示,政府加强犬只管理他们完全支持,但管理手段太过粗暴。威信县城居民李先生对记者表示,“先不说一次、二次警告罚款之后就直接捕杀是不是太过残忍,城区里禁止一切形式的遛狗,这不就直接等于宣布禁止养狗了?不能因为少部分养狗人的不规矩而让全县城的狗儿一起承担后果。”
