The Donkey Sanctuary has welcomed the news that the Government is publishing a new animal welfare bill to increase sentences for animal cruelty and recognise animal sentience in domestic law.
Mike Baker, chief executive of The Donkey Sanctuary, says: “The announcement is a significant step forward in animal welfare standards and we very much welcome it. The Donkey Sanctuary has said all along that we have a moral duty to treat animals in a humane and compassionate way and that leaving the EU must not lead to any watering down of existing standards on animal welfare.”
The Donkey Sanctuary has had one of its John Deere tractors stolen between 3:30pm on Saturday 25 November and 9:00am on Sunday 26 November.
Devon and Cornwall Police are investigating the theft of the John Deere 6220 Loader Tractor, registration number, WA06 FVO.
The tractor has a bucket on the front and a new scraper on the back.
The Donkey Sanctuary has given a cautious welcome to a sudden change of heart by the Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) following the vote by MPs to reject the inclusion of animal sentience into the EU Withdrawal Bill last week.
Mike Baker, chief executive of The Donkey Sanctuary, says: “The Donkey Sanctuary was disappointed and concerned that the clause was rejected. This defeat could have meant that current animal welfare standards would not have been enshrined in UK law post-Brexit.”
The Donkey Sanctuary has joined forces with the Born Free Foundation, LionAid and Olsen Verlag publishers in supporting #lionopera, by the leading young British composer, James Olsen. #lionopera is an ambitious new cycle of children’s operas, providing an opportunity for primary schools to take part in the first performances of ‘One of Our Lions is Missing!’ by staging their own production, free of charge in the summer of 2018.
