Complaints of unmuzzled greyhounds
Kingborough Council has received concerns from members of the public regarding Greyhounds in declared exercise areas and other public spaces, that are not muzzled and restrained by a lead.
The Council would like to proactively remind all groups and individuals meeting in Kingborough, that it is a current requirement (rightly or wrongly) under section 18 of the Dog Control Act 2000, that Greyhounds, while in a public place are muzzled and secured/restrained by means of a lead not exceeding two metres long, held by hand by a person of sufficient age and strength to control the dog. Please do not hesitate to contact the Kingborough Council if you have any queries or wish to discuss any issues further. Kingborough Council Compliance Office phone 6211 8200.
