GSPCA and Guernsey Animal Aid meet the States to discuss Animal Welfare Laws in Guernsey

Submitted by Steve on 11:48, 24th Sep, 2021 | 0

Last Tuesday, Guernsey Animal Aid and the GSPCA met with the States Veterinary Office and Deputy Al Brouard,  to discuss concerns and suggestions in regards the Animal Welfare Laws in Guernsey.

The current Guernsey Animal Welfare Ordinance 2012 demands an exceptionally high burden of proof, and securing a prosecution is very rare.

By law, the States Veterinary Officers must give owners a 24-hour notice period, before their office can go and investigate a welfare case, which means that evidence is almost impossible to collect.
