Posting Date: 31/08/2011

Closing Date: 28/11/2011

Tabled Date: 29/11/2011

Responded By: Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP on 5/01/2012

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the call to ban the sale, use and promotion of the torturous prong collar on dogs.  Banned in Victoria since 1997, prong collars are made of multiple wire prongs that puncture the neck.  Deemed unnecessary by experts the prong collar is an inhumane tool used to inflict pain and promote aggression.

 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to impose a complete ban in Queensland on the private, public and professional use, sale and promotion of prong collars.
