Tax or Death of you Pet?

In most towns, authorities may threaten you with massive fines, liens or even foreclosure if you don't pay your taxes. In the Swiss village of Reconvilier, they may just put your dog down.

Yes you read it right, it's like choosing between Tax or Death of your pet. In Switzerland, dog ownership is taxed.

According to the Associated Press, local official of Reconvilier Pierre-Alain Nemitz is threatening to execute dogs whose owners refuse to pay the village's annual $50 dog tax. Under a 1904 law, Nemitz says, the village government has the right to kill a dog if it's owner won't cope up the cash. Also according to Nemitz, “This isn't about a mass execution of dogs. It's meant to put pressure on people who don't cooperate.” It is part of the village's solution to collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes.

Despite of the reasonable aim, it seems unfair to punish the dog for the owners transgressions. It isn't the way to solve budget problems.

Apparently, the 2, 245 of Reconilier think that the money they've earned and the 280 dogs they own belong to them not the government.

Because of that plan, Nemitz overwhelmed by threats and insults not only in his town but pet lovers also. I'm sure person who shares their life with a dog, and treat it like one of the family members would not want to live in that place.
