Amber and Mac,
Laws here in Australia have been described as weak , as well there is the cost consideration for legal actions which the RSPCA mention is in conflict with doing other work .
Repeat offenders have rights in court and often claim being victimised by the RSPCA.
Then the issues of the animal get left behind.
Respect for life and humane treatment of animals make the world a better place.
Injustice toward fellow man and animals continues if we do nothing.
