Charlottetown Enacts Tougher Laws on Dangerous Dogs

The City of Charlottetown, in Prince Edward Island, Canada, enacted new laws dealing with dangerous dogs. The new law does not, however, identify any specific breed:

  • Defines a dangerous dog as a dog that has bitten or attacked a person or an animal, or a dog that poses a menace.
  • Gives police officers more authority to seize dogs.
  • Allows officials to charge dog owners if their animals are out of control.
  • Raises fines for people who violate the animal control bylaw, doubling the maximum penalty to $1,000 and 90 days in jail.
  • This is a much more responsible approach to controlling dog attacks, by putting the burden on the dog owner. Quite unlike what the Province of Ontario did.
