printer friendly, larger print version

AROUND 300 demonstrators marched in Dublin yesterday to urge the Government to toughen their stance on animal cruelty.

Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) was joined by a host of other campaign groups to call on the Government "to enact tougher laws in the upcoming Animal Welfare Bill".

Commitments were made to replace the existing Bill, which was passed in 1911, in the Programme for Government.

Demonstration organiser, ARAN's John Carmody said they would be making a number of submissions for change.

"We're hoping that the Government will enact stronger legislation in the upcoming welfare bill to ban fur farming in Ireland, to ban animals in circuses and other forms of cruelty to animals," he told the Irish Independent.
