PostSubject: can they really do this   Sat 21 Mar 2015, 12:59 pm

Just seen a post on a fb group im a member of , where two staffies have killed a cat in there own enclosed garden , they have now had a letter from the housing association saying either rehome the dogs or the dogs have to be pts , can they really do this , i mean come on the cat went into the dogs garden , tbh this is my worst nightmare as wiley is a swine when it comes to cats and he would kill one if he got it in our garden , im rather upset at reading this as the cat trespassed into a dogs terrortory

Well... I don't know if our laws are the same? But here, if a dog kills another animal (domestic pet) it can be classed as "a dangerous" animal. Here you would have to post signs & a dog would be legally forced to wear a red & white striped collar.  2nd strike would /could be fatal here for the offender unless the 1st attack was on a human. Then it would be ...."game over". But the cats owner here would also be charged with failing to secure a pet.

I'm suprised if they can do that, however I would imagine the housing association can kick them out as unsuitable tenants and maybe that's what they have threatened
A dog can be classed as dangerously out of control if it injures another animal so I'm not sure what the process would be in those situations

Im very supprised Jo , i would of thought in the first instance they would require the dog to be muzzled at all times outside , but like you say council or housing association could have there own rules and if you dont obey them , then i guess you could be looking for somwhere else to live

I dont think so suzie , the dogs are neautered aswell , and our freindly to humans and other dogs but they just dont like cats abit like wiley , she said they always cheack the garden to see if theres any cats in , but this time she said it must of hid them jumped out and the dog got it , very unfortunate but imho these things happen and its not really the dogs fault nor the owners really in your own garden , fair enough if the dog had escaped and got into the cats garden , but i still think been PTS is extreme as its nature for alot of dogs to go for cats

In my case I would be likely to get complaints about my cat! He has balls of steel which I assume is from being a stray for how ever many years he was
