The petition of the undersigned residents of Tasmania draws to the attention of the House the hundreds of thousands of native animals that are being killed every year in this state legally authorised through Game Licences and the Crop Protection Permit scheme.
The native fauna of Tasmania is globally recognised as unique and remarkable. It is an essential responsibility of the state government to ensure the populations of these animals remain at healthy, sustainable levels.
Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens Leader and Animal Welfare spokesperson
Persistent allegations of cruelty and neglect at VDL dairies demand an urgent, sustained response from Biosecurity Tasmania. Yet in Parliament today, the Minister responsible for animal welfare refused to commit to unannounced visits to each of VDL’s multiple farms in the North West.
