Changed attitudes

Newfoundland to update animal protection laws.

Most of the province’s legislation relating to live animals was enacted in the 1970s and has not been significantly updated, according to the government’s news release.

“Societal expectations and attitudes towards the care of animals have changed since much of the existing legislation was introduced,” said the release. “The new legislation will provide the greatest protection and enforcement possible in regards to animal welfare and will address the fines and penalties for inappropriate treatment of animals and neglect. Details will be provided when the draft bill is released during the spring session.”
