Kanpur bans the breeding of Pitbull and Rottweiler dog breeds | WeForNews

Kanpur, September 27: The House of Kanpur Municipal Corporation (KMC) has passed a resolution banning the breeding of Pitbull and Rottweiler dog breeds in the city.

Anyone found breeding either of the two breeds will be fined up to 5,000 rupees and their ‘pet’ will be confiscated, according to the resolution.

Official sources said the resolution has now been sent to the City Commissioner, who will issue a formal order in this regard.

After consecutive incidents of dog attacks, the KMC decided to ban the two breeds considered dangerous.

According to KMC sources, if anyone is caught domesticating or selling canines of these two breeds, they will be penalized and the dog will be confiscated.

The resolution said people do not have a large enough residence or farm to keep dogs of dreaded alien species, due to which they get stressed and attack people.

“To protect the public from attack, the fearsome Pitbull and Rottweiler breeds are prohibited within city limits,” he added.

Additional City Commissioner Suryakant Tripathi said: “The breeding of dogs of these two species for domestication and trade is prohibited in urban areas. If a person illegally keeps such dogs within the municipal boundaries, a fine of Rs 5,000 will be imposed and the dog will also be confiscated.

After the incidents of Pitbull attacks in Lucknow, Ghaziabad and Meerut, a Pitbull had recently attacked a cow at Sarsaiya Ghat in Kanpur.

The video of the Kanpur incident had gone viral on social media.
