State Duma deputy and head of Yakutsk will continue the dispute about the tax on dogs

State Duma deputy and head of Yakutsk will continue the dispute about the tax on dogs

The head of the State Duma Committee on Ecology and Environmental Protection Vladimir Burmatov will come to Yakutia and discuss with the head of the republican capital Sardana Avksentieva the idea of ​​introducing a tax on dogs and the possibility of creating a charity fund in Yakutsk to help street animals.

According to the press service of United Russia, Burmatov believes that the problem with street animals can be solved without charging an additional fee from breeders. One possible solution is the construction of shelters. He said that many regions, including in difficult climatic conditions, switched to regulating the number of animals through shelters, but for some reason he cited the Nizhny Novgorod region as an example.

He also suggests introducing fines for leaving the animal on the street. According to him, negligent owners can be fined up to 70 thousand rubles for leaving a pet or transferring it to a shelter. He categorically does not support the idea of ​​a tax for pet owners and suggests creating a charity fund in the republic to help keep street animals and build shelters.

This week, the head of Yakutsk, Sardana Avksentieva, suggested that local deputies work together with parliamentarians to introduce a tax on dogs, since expensive for the budget trapping, vaccination and keeping stray animals. She cited as an example some countries where shelters can be maintained for such fees.

Vladimir Burmatov called the initiative delirium and provocation. In response, Sardan Avksentieva invited him to go down to earth, to come to Yakutia and personally verify what problems the residents face in connection with the adoption of the crude law.
