(UK) Every new pet dog must have a 35 microchip--putting all eight million pets on massive database

Every new pet dog will be microchipped under sweeping Government regulations to combat dangerous animals.

Each puppy born and dog sold will have an electronic chip implanted under the skin. Details will then be placed on a national database accessible by police and the RSPCA.

A confidential Whitehall document obtained by The Mail on Sunday says: ‘The compulsory microchipping of dogs on change of ownership would affect anyone breeding dogs for sale or gifting to another person or persons.

This would apply to anyone breeding dogs, whether they are a breeder or a private person whose bitch has a litter, whether planned or not.’

But the proposals last night prompted criticism from MPs and animal experts. They claim that the moves will unfairly penalise the law-abiding owners of Britain’s eight million dogs and will do nothing to tackle the problems posed by dangerous breeds such as pitbulls and Japanese tosas.

Until now, Ministers have been reluctant to introduce compulsory microchipping or licensing amid fears of a backlash from dog owners. The Dogs Trust estimates that around 800,000 puppies are born each year.

‘This will result in a disproportionate burden on the law-abiding who keep dogs and especially those who need dogs for their work such as farmers who keep kennels. They will be stuck with another expense and piece of legislation to obey.’

The document, drawn up by the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), says the chips would initially be imprinted with the details of the dog breeder and would be ‘updated by other persons transferring ownership of their pet with the contact details of the new owner when ownership is transferred’.

#1 —— Thousands of new drones and lard arses will get Gov’t jobs to administer this program.
#2 —— Does anyone think the gypsies and travelers and ghetto people will be complying with this law?

Muzzies don’t believe in having dogs as pets, so when Sharia comes to Britain, they’ll know where all of the pet dogs are.

I think they should chip all the mullahs (including GPS, video and audio).

Microchip the politicians and criminals instead. They kill far more people than dogs do.

35 pounds times 8 million pets. Do ya think the chip maker had something to do with this little requirement??

Anybody know anyone who has had brain damage from a bike wreck before the days of those stupid, ugly helmets? ‘Spose the helmet manufacturers had anything to do with legislation?

Practice for when it’s the human folks turn. They should have the major bugs worked out by then.

The best way for Brits to deal with this new fascist dictate is to kill all the bureaucrats. Since you don’t have rifles or pistols, use fire pokers, sticks, bricks or rocks.

Bash in the heads of every cop and bureaucrat in your neighborhood. Find your local politician, drag him out from behind his desk and hang him from the nearest lamppost.

Slaughter every commie in your country. Let the streets run blood red.

As for the muslims, get yourselves hand grenades. Kill every muslim in your country.

Kill the BBC pukes. All of them.

Queen Charles? Kill that maggot. Draw and quarter him.

Now after you do all this, you’ll have a nice day.

They should micro-chip snakes, spiders and mosquitoes too.

All three are dangerous and have easily killed many more people than dogs have.

“No dogs, guns, drums for negroes” -— used to be the rule
way back when in some areas.
