The Government had approved the Legal Draftsman to amend the Ordinance to make provisions to increase the fine on owners of stray dogs to Rs. 25,000 and the imprisonment to two years, Mass Media Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka said today.

He said the Registration of Dogs Ordinance No. 25 of 1901 was amendment due to the difficulties faced by the public due to stray dogs.

    What morons! Stray dogs, by definition, do NOT have owners

    Exactly, the few people who neuter strays and vaccinate them will be singled out compounding the the problem as no one will take responsibility to reduce the stray population.

    Sadly most owners of stray dogs can ill afford to pay massive fines. They are humane enough to take care of these helpless animals. Why burden them with more especially these days. Help them with the sterilization and vaccines instead. via DM Android App

    Typical idiocy of our politicos and lawyers. How do they expect to prove ownership of stray dogs.

    If they are stray dogs, how can you find owners? Funny.

    That much is the knowledge of our minister

    Take the meaning properly of this news story. Most of the dogs we see as stray dogs have owners. They just feed them and make them roam in streets and poo etc. especially we can see this at evenings and night time. So I think it's a good move to fine such owners.

    All stray dogs belongs to Ministers

    If dogs could vote, this won't be implemented. What happened to fines brought on traffic violations?
