Australian Animal Law
The news states that the Animal Welfare Act has attained its agenda of banning harmful testing of animals. Animal Welfare Act of 1985 restrict residents of Australia for causing unnecessary harm to the animals. The laws and policies according to this act gives special treatment and coverage to the animals with the aim of maximizing their welfare. The act stated that the animals used for the purpose of research must not be caused any significant harm. They must be offered humane treatment and care. Large-scale use of stolen animals is also restricted in this act. It also emphasize of eliminating the need for duplicating experiments. In conduction of research or experiments adequate measures are taken for providing safe environment and standards. Provision of animal care and treatments are equally important during and after performance of experiment. Conditions are defined in which animal can be used for experimentation. The act also states that the animal dealer must adopt safety standards and offer good nutrition and vaccinations.
I agree with the viewpoints of Avila in the article “Just Preservation” in which he has raised questions about anthropocentric status quo of conservation. I agree that society has failed to treat animals humanely and they always have been the victims of human practices. Animals are still hunted and suffering brutal treatment of humans which is unfair. I think the policies on controlling cruelty of animals have attained limited success. In reality, animals are still killed unnecessarily by human for their benefits. After reading the article I believe that the state and animal welfare organizations must suggests policy measures for eliminating animal hunting and excessive killings. Human practices are not only threatening animals but also causing harmful effects on the nature and environment. Biodiversity and environment conservation are two critical issues linked to animal killings at large-scale.
