Australia: Meeting with West-Australien Department for Agriculture

Animals’ Angels meet with two new Dept of Ag and Food WA appointees. One is responsible for Animal Welfare Regulation in Western Australia and the other looks after communication to industry. We discuss a range of welfare problems that plague Western Australia and talk about the need to review the ‘Is it fit to load’ guide which we believe requires updating with additional information for industry.

The current Animal Welfare Act 2002 is due for review. We will certainly be submitting our views on the inadequate and at times ineffective legislation that so often fails to protect animals.
