On 9 November 2021, a shed caught fire in Carisbrook in Central Victoria. Inside it, an estimated 45,000 hens suffered an agonising death in the smoke and flames. We're calling for an immediate investigation into how this happened, and for urgent action on factory farming in Victoria.
Each year approximately 2.5 million animals including cows, sheep, goats, buffalo and alpacas face the horrors of Australian live export by sea and air. Our weak laws have failed these suffering animals long enough.
Australian Governments have turned a blind eye to the suffering of these animals, even despite shocking exposés and calls by millions to ban this cruelty. But now that New Zealand and the UK are moving to ban live animal export, the pressure is on for Australia to do the same, or risk becoming a global embarrassment.
The current killing campaigns against brumbies impose horrific suffering by implementing shooting by helicopter or shooting and poisoning on land. We believe the Victorian Government has a responsibility to protect and enrich our environment without the use of violence.
In a landmark decision, Racing South Australia has announced an end to jumps racing. It leaves behind Victoria as the only state to still permit this cruel event. It's time to call on Racing Victoria and the Victorian government to end jumps racing, once and for all.
Send an email to the Loddon Tourism Team below encouraging them to give feedback to the Loddon Shire Council about the negative impact a kangaroo abattoir will have on tourism.
Extensive research has revealed no evidence that whips improve performance times in horse racing or that they make racing safer or fairer for jockeys. Whip rules are difficult to mandate and fines are meaningless compared to the prize money awarded to jockeys.
Rabbit farming is a small industry causing immense suffering. Rabbits are among the most popular pets in Australia yet thousands of these same species are kept in appalling conditions every day as animals raised for meat.
Despite an ongoing commitment from the Victorian Government to address this issue, examples of items that have previously been tested, as well as new mislabelled items, continue to be sold at markets and retail stores across Victoria. The only way to regulate the sale of 'faux' fur is to ban genuine animal fur altogether.
Shooting ducks is morally unacceptable to the majority of Victorians and studies show time and time again that native duck numbers are consistently declining as a direct result of the climate emergency and drought. Duck shooting has already been banned by Labor Governments in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. It's time for Victoria to do the same.
Do your state members of parliament support our precious native waterbirds, or do they think they should be blasted out of the sky for a thrill kill?
On Wed 10th Feb '21, we hosted an urgent webinar to highlight the issue and the efforts being taken to stop the killing. We also listed actions that you can do to help as:
- Regional Victorians who may be confronted by shooting in their vicinity
- Concerned voters who want to take political actions
- Community members wanting to undertake direct local action
