Legislation to protect animals under review

Tue, 09 Dec 2014


Animal welfare legislation on the Isle of Man is under review.

A new Tynwald Select Committee has been set up to garner the public's views following a petition handed in on Tynwald Day.

It calls for the Isle of Man to introduce legislation comparable to that contained in the UK Animal Welfare Act 2006.

It's being chaired by South Douglas MHK Kate Beecroft - anyone who wants to submit their thoughts has until January 23rd.

Rosaleen Harrison submitted the petition - she says issues of animal neglect and cruelty are a hidden problem:
