    ‘Cruel’ electric shock pet training collars to be banned in England

    A ban on so-called pet “shock collars” is to be imposed in England, under plans confirmed by the government on Sunday. Ministers have announced proposals to ban the devices, used to control pets, which are already banned in Wales. Scotland has already announced it is following suit. It comes after a concerted campaign by animal rights campaigners. While they are designed to control and train dogs and cats, they have been attacked as cruel for giving animals an electric shock when they misbehave. The devices are usually controlled via a remote control.
