TIME TO REVIEW RSPCA SAYS PGA

2015-05-12

Western Australia’s leading agricultural lobby group, the Pastoralists and Graziers Association (PGA), has thrown its support behind the push for a parliamentary inquiry into the Western Australian branch of the RSPCA.

 

“The RSPCA, which receives monies from the State Government to administer the Animal Welfare Act, should be subject to the same scrutiny and oversight as any other Government body,” PGA President Tony Seabrook said.

 

“WA’s farming community has, and continues to be, a long time supporter of the RSPCA, with many farmers and pastoralists sitting on its Board; however this support has waned following the organisation’s decision to join with animal rights groups like Animals Australia or PETA in attacking the livestock industry.”

 

“There remains concerns throughout the rural community over the organisation’s continual attacks on live exports, mulesing and feral animal control; all complicated by the fact that the RSPCA is funded by the State Government to police these same areas.”

 

 “The PGA believes that it is the responsibility of Government to review any body that receives public monies and is supportive of an inquiry into the RSPCA.”
