The Animal Welfare Act UK... an introduction

Topical news... as from 6th April, 2007 the new Animal Welfare Act comes into force in the UK.

It is welcomed by the RSPCA. And it appears to require more responsibility from animal owners... let us hope it does what it is supposed to do. It is a sad world which actually NEEDS acts like this... sometimes you could despair when you hear so many tales of cruelty.

I won't launch into my feelings about the judiciary and sentencing policies... that's a whole different blog! [Non-existent, otherwise I'm sure it would create a great deal of trouble.]

Back to the Animal Welfare Act... if you want to check the details of the act out and get further information... here are two addresses which point - they should, at least, keep one of them current - to DEFRA.

First the general introductory page at:
DEFRA - animals
then we have the page which currently has links to, and explains, the new Animal Welfare Act at:
DEFRA - Animal Welfare Act
