RSPCA launches campaign to change legislation

The RSPCA this week launched its lobbying campaign aimed at

convincing the Government to change legislation surrounding dangerous

wild animals being kept as pets. RSPCA campaign co-ordinator Emma

Nutbrown said a concerted lobbying push would begin once the Government

has had time to consider the society's submission on the issue. The

society claims the 1976 Dangerous Wild Animals Act is failing to protect

both dangerous animals and their owners due to a number of loopholes.

The comms campaign is focused on raising public awareness of the issues.
