If we're putting animals to sleep, we still have a surplus SO NO BREEDING! 22. Asli Gedik A, Germany 23. Tierney Grinavic Huntingtown, MD 24. kendra Pinder Stoke On Trent, A review every 50 years is horrific, why has it not been United Kingdom done sooner? Also working with international animal welfare groups rather than trying to block out what is going on in your country form the rest of the world does not help. Spadeing and neutering rather than breeding is needed. Tougher laws, tougher sentences. Better welfare for farm animals and thos that are made to work for humans. CCTV, proper supervision, not a group like the RSPCA who are a complete joke, Animal cruelty fo any kind must be acted upon with tough sentences. Raising the bar in regards to animal cruelty is needed as soon as possible. 25. michele squires Hockley, TX Page 3 - Signatures 1 - 25 Name From Comments 26. heidi wollum Goteborg, Sweden 27.

Cherida Hivale New Delhi, India I'm so glad a new welfare act has been drafted - it's not as tough as I might like but still has more teeth than the last one. I'm glad Mr Kadyan and Mr Jayram Ramesh have empowered animals even more. It's definitely a step in the right direction. The next step will be to ensure that it's enforced by the local police and other authorities. Page 4 - Signatures 26 - 52 Name From Comments 53. Nadezhda Alicante, Spain Peneva 54.
