Dutch Introduce 500 Animal Rights Police

Animal abusers in the Netherlands will have more to worry about as lawmakers in that country introduce 500 police officers dedicated to monitoring animal rights.

The taskforce was inspired by Animal Cops, a TV show on Animal Planet that chronicles the work of animal rescue officers in the U.S. The Dutch initiative was championed by Geert Wilders, Holland's influential far-right lawmaker, and a small animal rights party that holds seats in that country's upper and lower houses.
