Call to stop attacks on guide dogs

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn supports the Guide Dogs’ call to stop attacks on guide dogs at an event at the Houses of Parliament, and was amongst the 150 Members of Parliament that backed the charity’s call.

 

New figures were released in early June showing that attacks on guide dogs are at an all time high and now run at an average of eight a month. Guide Dogs held this event to highlight the charity’s growing concern about attacks on guide dogs by other dogs, and to ask MPs for their support.

 

The government is currently consulting about compulsory microchipping but has said its preferred option is to microchip puppies only. Under this plan, it would take 10 to 15 years before all dogs are microchipped. Guide Dogs believe it would take too long to make a difference and want to see the compulsory microchipping of all dogs within two years.

 

Meg said:

 

“Dog attacks are an increasing problem in this county and attacks on guide dogs are very frightening for the owners. The government needs to do all they can to address this issue and consider a change in the law.”
