This Funzing Experience:

Recent legislation in countries around the world is starting to put the UK’s animal welfare laws to shame.

In the UK we like to think of ourselves as the biggest animal lovers in the world, but as laws progress in other countries, we’re quickly beginning to lose our status.

This year in Brussels, the government prohibited the breeding of Scottish Fold cats and certain hybrids based on concerns about health and welfare.

They’re not even the first government to address breed concerns in companion animals.

And let us not forget the welfare of farmed animals, with billions of animals suffering every year in intensive farming systems.

So what are governments doing about this? Some are beginning to take action, but in the UK the only legislation recently passed for farm animals was putting CCTV in slaughterhouses.

While this is positive, it isn’t raising standards, simply making sure people comply.

In this talk, we will compare some of the most recent changes in legislation around the world and just what that means for the UK.

Venue: The Square Club, Bristol

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
