    You'll probably hate me for posting this (I'm not attacking anyone!!) but I would prefer government resources to be used for preventing child abuse. I am fully against animal abuse but you have to prioritise the issues - I put children higher on the list than animals.

    Yeah of course, but this is an addition to law that i think would be very beneficial. At the moment people from the RSPCA cannot intervene unless the animal is actually suffering, under these new rules they could prevent the animal suffering at all....
    Obviously there are lots of other things in the world that need to be done as well, I'm not saying this is the only thing.....
    Just thought it was worth bringing up...

    What does my head in is that the RSPCA recieves no government funding, yet many laws exists which state that in certain situations the RSPCA must intervene. If the government are using the RSPCA, surely they should help keep them going.

    I gree children (well all people) before animals, but it doesn't work like that. Not changing this law is not going to stop any child from being abused and we can have this law and still fight child cruelty.

    Great thread, I signed the petition. I think that it is rediculous that the RSPCA have to wait so long before helping an animal in trouble.
