Why It's Time To Get Tough On Animal Cruelty

How many times will the perpetrators of animal cruelty get to walk away scot-free before the Government toughens up the law? Personally I'm sick of having to look into the eyes of dogs who have been abused, knowing that the people who have done this will potentially be doing the same to another animal. Stronger penalties are just one way to put an end to this misery, but they are a vital step. It's time to step up and give these animals the justice they deserve.

Demand For Dairy Is Driving The Badger Cull

The badger cull has clearly been a political tool to keep traditionally conservative-voting farmers and farming communities onside. The government have been keen to show that they are doing something to help, that they are taking a strong stance. In reality this is manifesting in violence and cruelty rather than addressing the root cause - modern farming methods.

Cub hunting is the secretive and illegal practice of training young inexperienced fox hounds to hunt and kill fox cubs. The Hunting Act has been in force for over ten years and yet still hunts continue to train young hounds to hunt and kill foxes. Hunts usually meet early in the morning but sometimes in the evening before the sun sets when the foxes' scent is strongest.

By creating an animal abuse register it can be the firewall that stops someone from abusing and potentially help them to change their course in life. If the register can change one person's life for the better or protect one-person form abuse the all of the work will be worth it.

Government Blind to Animal Cruelty of Snares

Therese Coffey said during the debate that Britain has the highest animal welfare standards in the world. When it comes to snares, that's utter nonsense - we're practically alone in Europe when it comes to allowing their use. I believe that it's time for the Government to back up those words with action. It's time for a ban on snares.
