New Zealand government is ignoring advisers and "missing the point" in it's new dangerous dog laws

New laws in New Zealand regarding dangerous dogs "miss the point" according to animal law expert and former veterinarian Ian Robertson. 
 
A real concern, according to Ian Robertson, is the fact that government decision makers have received input from organisations like the RSPCA and the New Zealand Veterinary Association, and ignored their advice. The result is continued, although avoidable, risk to dogs, owners and the community.
