Useless Auckland Council’s halfwit policy on dogs

Dangerous-Dogs

Lame Duck Mayor Len Brown and his merry band of idiots on council have decided to offer an amnesty to dangerous dog owners. As if another regulation will actually work, but it is a good excuse when it comes to not enforcing current regulations properly.

In the real world, South Auckland’s people want real action. For a moment it seemed the politicians had listened. There was a glimmer of hope after south Auckland Councillor Callum Penrose announced a high-powered group of politicians would front the media with their solution.

But by the time Thursday’s highly publicised photo-opportunity concluded, hope was lost.

People in the communities soon realised, Auckland Council’s call for an amnesty, on the owners of unregistered dog owners, was a cop-out and more a solution for political anxiety than for those who live in this city’s urban communities.

Fronting the photo-op was Auckland’s Mayor, Len Brown, and Councillor Penrose.

They boldly raised how Auckland Council will initiate an amnesty so the owners of Auckland’s unregistered dogs will be able to come forward, pay their fees without fear, or fine, or prosecution.The only thing stopping Len Brown and Calum Penrose from getting off their arses and impounding menacing dogs is their own lack of leadership.

Only the most out-of-touch politicians would believe an amnesty will get mongrel owners to take an interest in their mongrel dogs.

These useless Auckland Council politicians don’t do anything other than talk, promise and divert attention when roaming dogs bite innocent children and other domestic animals in suburban streets.

Roaming dogs are on the loose. Auckland Council should go and catch them.

It is obviously election year because Penrose is finally trying to do something. In fairness to him he is doing it to the best of his limited ability, but that doesn’t mean he needs to be re-elected. Penrose’s ward needs a councillor who doesn’t respond with knee-jerk reactions to long-standing problems because it happens to be election year.
