Owners Of Fat Pets Could Be Jailed

Gulag UK

Owners of fat dogs or cats could face prosecution under the Animal Welfare Act which comes into force tomorrow. The Act, the biggest overhaul of animal welfare legislation for a century, creates a new offence of failing in the duty of care towards a captive animal.

Pet owners can for the first time be guilty of an offence before an act of cruelty has been committed, for example by overfeeding their pet.
