In the Primorsky Territory, a bill was passed on fines for self-walking pets, as well as for the lack of marking – the law on mandatory marking of pets in Primorye should enter into force on 1 June. However, the regulation for him and the procedure for the citizens have not been developed yet and the prosecution came up with the initiative to postpone the imposition of fines for next year. But for violating walking requirements, they will start punishing sooner.
Primorye MPs approved fines for owners of dogs, cats and other pets who did not properly mark their pets or let them “walk around on their own”.
Thus, for violating the rules for keeping pets in public places, a fine in the amount of one thousand to 2 thousand rubles is provided for citizens and from 3 to 5 thousand rubles for officials. A repeated violation will cost a citizen 2-5 thousand rubles, an official – 5-10 thousand rubles.
If the violation has caused harm to human life and health, and liability for it is not provided by federal law, the perpetrator faces a fine of 2000 to 4000 rubles. The official will be fined 5-7 thousand rubles. Sanctions for a repeated violation for citizens will amount to 5 thousand rubles, for officials – 10 thousand rubles.
For lack of marking on an animal, a fine of one thousand to 3 thousand rubles for citizens, from 5 thousand to 10 thousand rubles for officials, from 10 to 20 thousand rubles for legal entities.
At the same time, there is still no procedure for mandatory labeling, keeping of animal registers and other regulatory documents for the law that enters into force on June 1st. The regional government responded that “work is underway”, without giving details.
On the other hand, the prosecutor’s office of Primorsky Krai came up with an initiative regarding the fines. The supervisory authority noted that in relation to sanctions and their consequences, the state should support citizens and not punish them.
“Implementing measures for marking dogs will require additional financial costs from their owners. In such circumstances, the imposition of administrative liability may incur additional costs for the payment of administrative fines and create preconditions for social tension. Moreover, the simple fact of labeling a dog does not exclude the possibility of its participation in the reproduction of offspring by stray dogs, causing harm to the life and health of citizens, and consequently non-fulfillment of the obligation to label does not pose a risk. big public “, it is said in a statement of the prosecution.
The prosecution proposed postponing the imposition of fines for lack of marking until January 1, 2023. Deputies passed the law unanimously. It will enter into force upon publication.
