Travelling circuses are no place for wild animals. Being moved from place to place in cramped and substandard enclosures, forced training and performance, loud noises and crowds of people are the unavoidable distressing realities for animals in circuses. Despite promising to ban the use of wild animals in travelling circuses, the Tory-led Government has failed to do so. The next Labour government will ban this cruel practice.
At present we have ineffective regulation, a lack of information for pet owners and a failure to deal with irresponsible and cruel breeding practices. Labour will review the inadequate regulations on the sale and breeding of dogs and cats and develop a new strategy to improve their welfare.
6) Labour will lead the fight against global animal cruelty
The humane treatment of animals should be a benchmark for any civilised society. National governments have a duty to work together to prevent cruelty around the world. Labour will push to end all commercial whaling and prevent the poaching and near extinction of endangered species such as elephants, rhinos and tigers.

What Labour achieved lest we forget: animal welfare.

While an end to the Badger cull and the continued ban is very welcome, a tightening of the ban would be even better. Compulsory muzzeling of hounds, harsher punishment of those caught flouting the ban, implementing something that would force the police to actually do their job instead of acting like hired help to the hunt, large fines for out of control hounds. At the moment the ban doesn’t go far enough to protect foxes or any other wildlife.
Some good humane policies which should prove popular with the vast majority of the electorate.

I have often said that a person’s attitude towards animals is a pretty good indication of their attitude towards people, too.” So true. I would imagine that this conservative lead government don’t have an animal welfare bone in their body. Selfish, self-righteousness evil scum.
