Hunting dogs in San Giorgio

Hunting is popular in San Giorgio and the surrounding areas and so many people keep hunting dogs. Some people both hunters and non-hunters feel that many dogs are kept in unsuitable conditions. In the last couople of weeks an environmental inspector has been inspecting the areas where the dogs are kept and some people have been fined for various breaches of the rules e.g. not having them tagged, insufficient kennel space (the law states that if the dogs are kept in a cage then the cage should be a minimum of 8 sq metres. The work of the inspector has upset many in the hunting community and there was a stormy meeting last week to discuss the issues. The feeling was that the inspector was being over zealous and that the regulations are too strict. However, the action appears to have had some impact as some owners are, appartently, refurbishing their kennel areas.
