Fines for pet owners whose pets have bitten someone should be 200 thousand rubles. This was stated by the first deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Ecology, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Vladimir Burmatov at the press center of the Parliamentary Newspaper.
According to the deputy, the owners of any dogs should bear responsibility. It will be possible to punish not only under the criminal code, but also under the administrative code with large fines, he explained. “We will carry out this amendment in the spring,” Burmatov emphasized.

In his opinion, these situations are similar to accidents on the road – the driver is to blame, not the make of the car.
“Drivers are held accountable. Exactly the same with dogs. The person is to blame. A person must be held accountable, regardless of what breed of dog he has, ”concluded Burmatov.
