At a time when welfare regulations are clearly failing our animals, the Government has now scrapped the Australian Animal Welfare Advisory Committee (AusAWAC). AusAWAC represents a wide range of stakeholders with knowledge and expertise across key animal welfare issues. It advises the Minister for Agriculture and drives the implementation of the Australian Animal Welfare Strategy. This is not just about live export it is about animal welfare in Australia, important for producers, welfare advocates and of course, our animals.
So what happens now to Australian Animal Welfare Strategy? Government attitude would seem to be "Who cares?".
