  • B.C. wants dangerous dogs registry unlike Montreal’s breed-specific ban

    CBC] British Columbia is considering a dangerous offenders registry for dogs — unlike breed-specific bans like the one that passed this week in Montreal. A vote on the provincewide implementation of a registry for dogs deemed dangerous because of bad behaviour will happen in October. The issue has come to the forefront in B.C. this week as an elderly woman was seriously injured when her dog attacked her Monday and a dog was killed in a fight with another dog in Langley the following day.  Earlier this year the B.C. SPCA also proposed a dangerous dogs registry in the province. The B.C. registry would not apply to a specific breed like pitbulls. “To single out a particular breed seemed to miss the mark, we’re trying to deal with dangerous dogs of any breed,“ Pitt Meadows Mayor John Becker told CBC News.  And having a provincewide registry allows different B.C. municipalities to track a dog even if its owners move to a new city or town.
