Call to micro-chip all dogs in Jersey
Saturday 16th February 2013, 12:30PM GMT.
ALL dogs in Jersey should be micro-chipped in line with proposals to change UK legislation, according to Senator Sarah Ferguson.
She wants the Dogs (Jersey) Law 1961 to be updated to follow the UK, which has recently proposed compulsory micro-chipping of all dogs by January 2016. Failure to do this would constitute a criminal offence.
Senator Ferguson said that the scheme would stop parishes spending money on trying to find stray dogs.
