Farms and slaughterhouses in the UK currently do not require any form of registration or licensing to operate. This is a clear oversight and it leaves animals vulnerable to further exploitation and illegal abuse and neglect.
Our investigation, alongside The Animal Law Foundation, discovered that fewer than 3% of the UK farms are inspected each year on average. And just half of complaints made against farms in the UK are investigated. When wrongdoing is found, animal abusers often receive little more than a written caution.
The situation is clear. Animal protection laws are being broken time and time again and the Government is failing to stop it.
Animal Equality is urging the Government to enforce existing laws and prosecute those who abuse animals.
