Australia Behind in Animal Law

G'day Dog Lovers,

US law experts believe that the development of laws for the protection and welfare of animals is considerably behind in Australia. Check out this link to find out more - http://www.lawyersweekly.com.au/blogs/top_stories/archive/2009/04/22/australia-behind-on-animal-law.aspx

This ties in well with an article in our current issue on whether the punishment for animal cruelty in Australia fits the crime. Pick up a copy of our latest issue to read this story.

What do you think? Should we introduce harsher penalties for those who commit crimes against animals or are our laws already tough enough?
