Rome Law: Walk Dog or Pay

By  | 

A new law in Rome, Italy proves the city may have "gone to the dogs."

Under a new animal rights bill passed by Rome's city council on Monday, dog owners who fail to take their dogs on regular walks could face a fine.

Breaking the new law is punishable by a fine of up to 500 Euros.

Animal rights organizations in the city have said they will work to spread the news about the new laws to the city's population and will work with the police to make sure the law is properly implemented.
