Regarding your article yesterday on the decapitated wallaby found on the beach at Byron Bay, cruelty to animals/birds reflects the baseness of the human condition.
Is it possible to have the legislation changed so that anyone found guilty of cruelty is on a national register and barred from working with or owning an animal/bird for a minimum of 10 years?
Of course this would be in addition to an increase in penalties that already apply under the current legislation. It would certainly send a message that animals and birds are sentient beings!
