Hi everyone
Not sure how many of you are aware of the proposed changes to animal welfare in nsw.
The fact it was raised by the Animal Justice Party should alone be a cause for alarm.
Feral animals will be given the same considerations as domestic animals.
Causing an animal "psychological harm" will be a thing, with policing of such handed to vested interest parties like Voiceless & Peta. That could mean that because they "think" your snake /lizard / frog / turtle is unhappy, it could be removed and the owner fined.

Im all for preventing cruelty, but im not into either animals right or giving credibility to nutjobs like Peta.
This could be very bad for keepers in nsw if it gets up.
