End Cruelty

Animal welfare has been highlighted by the League Against Cruel Sports. They are pushing for more progress in making cruelty to animals for sport a thing of the past. I take animal welfare seriously and support the develop of policies to reflect this:-

  • A ban on the sale, purchase and use of all snares;
  • A commitment to enforce current laws on wildlife crime and;
  • A Government inquiry into the increasing problem of dog fighting and badger baiting.

I am increasingly concerned about dog fighting and it is vital to raise awareness of cruelty towards dogs.

There is evidence of dogs being starved as part of the training to increase violent and aggressive behaviour. Dogs caught up in fighting can be left dying from wounds or are drowned.

There have to be further steps to enforce the law and stop fighting and baiting.
