In the capital of Yakutia can introduce a tax on dogs. This idea was voiced by the head of the city administration Sardan Avksentiev. She invited local deputies to work out this issue with parliamentarians of the republic.

In Yakutsk, 14,5 thousand rubles are spent on trapping, vaccinating and maintaining each stray dog. The city needs 190 million rubles a year to effectively regulate their numbers. However, only 7,4 million can be allocated for these purposes.

All obligations are assigned to the municipality, but the responsibility of the owners of animals for self-walking is not registered anywhere. Sardana Avksentieva cited as an example some countries where taxes collected from pet owners can be maintained.
