The prison sentence for animal abusers is about to increase from three to five years!

 

 

Five years will now be the maximum prison sentence for animal abusers. Along with this increased sentence, animal abusers will also be listed under a registry that stops them from keeping any animals.

 

This was approved this week by the Cabinet after public consultation on the proposals.

This new rule allows veterinary services to carry out spot inspections where animals are being kept.

 

However, zoo regulations are set to remain the same.
