Wild mammals law

To return to UK animal cruelty, a Bill cleared the Commons recently - The Wild Mammals Protection Bill - which with a bit of luck will become law. This will make it an offence to kick, beat, impale, burn, crush or drown wild mammals - punishable by six months in the slammer.

For some strange reason, the clauses that would have banned hunting were thrown out. Allied to that, the Bill allows dogs to injure wild animals.

A country which has absolutely no compassion for animals is Spain. I was sixteen when I saw my first - and last - bullfight. My sympathy and sorrow were for the poor old horse and the bull bleeding and weakened by the lance of the picador. I wasn't remotely interested in the fate of the matador.
