Good on the government, who are about to pass a bill that increases the penalty for animal cruelty, from 3 years to 5 years imprisonment, for extreme cases. That's all very nice.....to the naive!
However, it is the New Zealand Government that inflicts the greatest crimes against animals in this country.
Through the use of their aerial poisoning operations (1080 & Brodificoum) they kill and torment 100's of thousands of animals, birds, insects and aquatic life every year, in a way that, if viewed on television, would make the hardest slaughter man feel sorrow.
But, just in case you don't believe me, please take the time to watch the following clips.
A drop has just taken place on Mt. Taranaki. 33,000 hectares.
The animals who died there, had to endure hours of suffering. Surely you can afford a few minutes to understand what these animals went through?
