Mr. BELL (St. Antoine):

1. Is the government enforcing without reserve stringent regulations for the killing of all unmuzzled dogs on the island and in the city of Montreal?

Hon. Mr. MOTHERWELL: (Minister of Agriculture)

Liberal

1. Yes. (There were captured and killed yesterday 14 dogs. This morning up to nine o'clock, four more had been captured. Dogs are killed in the Humane Society's pound, by electricity or gas; none are killed by our men.)

2. The government has not modified its regulations in this respect as yet, but has the matter under consideration.

3. No, but an effective muzzle is required to be worn, safety wire muzzle cages fitting over dog's heads are considered the best. Such a muzzle fitting loosely over the whole head and fastening to the collar is the one we recommend.

Timothy Eaton Company handle such muzzles, and have we believe furnished them to many other vendors. This muzzle allows dogs to open their mouths and to drink water, but they cannot bite.
