Anna Firth, MP for Southend West, has presented a Private Members Bill in Parliament to tackle dog-on-dog attacks.
Emilie’s Law, which was created in memory of a Bischon Frise who was mauled to death in Chalkwell, would criminalise fatal dog-on-dog attacks. The bill
The law fell at the first attempt when Parliament prorogued in October.
Firth told the Basildon Canvey Southend Echo: “It is absolutely unacceptable that owners who allow their dogs to kill other dogs should get off scot-free due to a legal loophole.
“I was delighted to present this bill and hope very much that other MPs will continue to hear the importance of Emilie’s Law.”
