More Good News From Taiwan
For one reason or another, Taiwan is proving to be something of a golden child these days when it comes to passing progressive legislation that benefits animals. If things continue this way, the Dutch are going to need to start watching their backs or they’ll lose their current status as “most animal-friendly country” before you can say “Dude, where the hell did you get these ‘animal-friendly-country’ statistics from anyway?” Under Taiwan’s latest piece of legislation, the Wildlife Conservation Law, all animal circuses will be banned, exports of exotic animals as pets will be prohibited, and the punishment for “harassing, hurting, or abandoning animals” will include a maximum one-year prison term. Way to go, Taiwan!
