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.
