    This legislation is long overdue!!!
    Give the pound staff the “choice” to observe the new legislation or find another job that requires seasoned killers e.g. shooters of wild pigs …… The staff should have ,as a MUST in their employment re-interview , that they LOVE animals and hate KILLING….otherwise give them the choice to “exit stage left “. Get them to prove this ….

    Thanks Shel.
    Do you have a list of the 16 councils concerned? Would like to cross-check against their performance to confirm/dispel suspicion that many would be those with some of the highest kill rates, who already do nothing more than legal minimum. If so, it may not in fact be possible for their kill rates to get any higher, so their arguments are BS.

    All staff in our Animal Pounds must be trained at the moment we have staff are not suitable to work with any animals its the quick buck that they look for this is insidious as the welfare of any animal is never considered as an owner of 3 cats and 1 beautiful Golden Retriever I am at a loss as to why these so called pounds will not allow volunteers to help, maybe it will affect the amount of money the ridiculous Councils pay to kill kill kill….Bankstown Council I am ashamed you sit on your Bums and do nothing I will remember this time we have council elections,,,,,Renbury is one pound that must be closed down or do a BIG SWEEP with the BIGGEST BROOM you can find……
