The Nova Scotia government announced today that it intends to bring in legislation this spring to better protect animals and stiffen penalties for animal abusers.
“The protection of animals deserves to be treated with the utmost seriousness. It’s unthinkable what some people are capable of doing to animals. Government has a responsibility to do whatever it can to ensure people who abuse animals face consequences,” said Mat Whynott, MLA for Hammonds Plains – Upper Sackville
This is indeed welcome news and I applaud the government for its commitment to animal welfare.
