Default Article - Pet owners face 20,000 fine for using electric collars

Electric collars that shock wayward cats and dogs into submission have been banned for the first time in Britain.
Wales has become the first part of the UK to outlaw the use of collars, which deliver a shock of electricity to the animal's neck.
Some are activated by the owner, who simply pushes a button on a remote control when their pet misbehaves.
Owners who break the ban face a fine of up to 20,000 or six months in prison.
Pet welfare groups, including the RSPCA and the Kennel Club, say the 100-plus electronic devices cause unnecessary pain and suffering and want the ban extended across Britain.
