Dog owners who do not leash their dogs while walking them will be fined when a revised national Law of Animal Epidemic Prevention comes into effect on May 1.

The new provision was added to reduce the likelihood of dog bites or other incidents, China Central Television reported today.

However, the newly revised law does not specify how much the fine will be.

Chen Ran, director of a pet hospital in Nanning, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, told CCTV that a majority of biting incidents and traffic accidents involving dogs take place because they are unleashed.
