MPs urged to repeal ban on dangerous dogs

The RSPCA has called on MPs to repeal the law banning dangerous dogs, after research revealed more than two thirds of fatal attacks since 1991 were by breeds not on the list. The animal charity said the Dangerous Dogs Act was failing to protect the public, after it emerged a record 7,719 people were admitted to hospital last year as a result of dog attacks – almost double the number in 2005. The environment, food and rural affairs committee has started an inquiry into the law’s effectiveness.
