Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens Leader and Spokesperson for Animal Welfare
Tasmania’s animal welfare laws fail to protect the rights of animal to live free from cruelty and neglect, placing a heavy, disproportionate emphasis on the profits of industry.
In Parliament this week, the Greens will table an amendment Bill to strengthen the Animal Welfare Act 1993. A copy of the Bill is attached.
"Mr Rockliff has committed to introducing sentencing amendments to the parliament before the end of the year, but has ruled out implementing all the recommendations from the Animal Welfare Act review which would ensure stronger animal welfare standards in Tasmania,” Ms O’Connor said.
