Dog-bite Fatalities and Breed-Specific Legislation
September 13, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Organised by: School of Psychology, National University of Ireland Galway
This Health Behaviour Change Research Group seminar will outline the scientific research on factors in dog-bite fatalities and the assertions related to the relevance of a dog’s breed within this context. The juxtaposition of these findings with public opinion and resulting political narratives will also be discussed. Dr. Ó Súilleabháin will outline the challenges of implementing evidence-based policy and potential strategies to meet these challenges. Strategies in the greeting or avoidance of dogs will also be provided!
