Belfast South - Animal Welfare

Use of dogs in animal hunting should be outlawed (fox hunting, etc)
Puppy farms and other third-party sales of animals should be banned
Seabins should be installed at docks and marinas to protect marine life
Harmful pesticides & insecticides should be banned
Bee keepers should be supported to maintain colonies over seasons
I oppose factory farming
Badger culling should be reviewed to include a science-led control of TB, which involves frequent testing and vaccination programs
There should be stricter sentencing for those convicted of animal cruelty offences and an animal cruelty register should be publicly available
