Chiles full of idiots and if there is a government change things are just going to go from stupid to unknowingly stupid.


Anyway, my google shows its just a project...

projects in chile can go anywhere from 1 day to 100 years before they turn into a law...

Pacos never know the laws (neither chileans) they will quote something as being a law half the time when its just hearsay

Ignore it!

A lot of what governs the ownership of pets was tossed into the municipalities' basket by the central government. The municipalities came up with ordenanzas which cover most things regarding pets but they can vary. I don't know if the new law has been passed, you seem to think not, but there is still a very old law on the books which says all dogs need to be on a lead and muzzled if out and about. Not sure how often that is invoked. It was upgrading this law which the new law was meant to do. It isn't very well written and, like a lot of laws, was hastily written because of dog attacks on people - some of which resulted in death. Virtually all those attacks were by pets with identifiable owners and not stray dogs. So check the ordenanzas of your municipality and perhaps contact the Chilean Kennel Club rather than an individual vet.

Just another symptom of the predilection of Chilean Authority for going after the easy target....which leads to arbitrary, illogical, and unjust situations, and the longer you live here the more you encounter them. Best to agree with whatever they say, then do nothing if you can.

As a practical matter, the stops display a measurable racial disparity: black and Hispanic people generally represent more than 85 percent of those stopped by the police, though their combined populations make up a small share of the city’s racial composition.

NEW YORK - New York state's attorney general on Tuesday launched an investigation into retailers Macy's Inc and Barneys New York Inc, where black customers complained they were stopped by police after making luxury purchases.

I know that zeronz isn't from the US, and I'm pretty sure fraggle isn't either... I don't understand your point.
