LIV Animal Welfare Committee calls for duck hunting reform

LIV Animal Welfare Committee calls for duck hunting reform

By Animal Welfare Committee

Advocacy Environment 


The LIV’s Animal Welfare Committee has written to the Minister for Agriculture expressing its concern that the current duck hunting regulations are insufficient in protecting animal welfare and are inadequately enforced by the Game Management Authority.

The Committee recommends the Government seriously consider a total ban on duck hunting to protect wild bird populations and ensure the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1986 is complied with so that ducks are not exposed to inhumane injury and death.

A ban on duck hunting would bring Victoria in line with Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales, who have all banned recreational duck shooting.
