Electric Shock Collars for Pets to Be Banned in England

first_imgAccording to a 2014 survey, 74% of the English population is in favor of the ban, while one third of recipients thought that there was already a ban in place. Scotland and Wales have both banned electric shock collars.RELATED: Instead of Seeing Fireworks on Fourth of July, 200 People Spent Their Holiday Comforting Shelter DogsDr. Rachel Casey, who is the director of canine behavior and research at animal welfare organization Dogs Trust, applauded the ban.“Scientific research has demonstrated that electronic devices which deliver an aversive stimulus have a negative impact on dog welfare, so this ban will have a major positive impact for dogs in the UK,” said Casey, according to the BBC.Containment fences, which use shock methods to prevent animals from leaving a certain area, are still legal based on evidence that they reportedly prevent up to 300,000 from being harmed in road and traffic related accidents.

Other collars can release noxious smelling chemicals as a means of dissuading pets from certain behaviors. Both of these devices have been shown to cause – and worsen – behavioral problems and anxiety in pets.Animal rights organizations that have been rallying for the ban encourage using positive-reward training techniques instead.last_img read more

British Ports Association Welcomes New Maritime Minister

first_img Author: Baibhav Mishra We are today writing to the Minister to make sure that these and the other priorities we have set out this month are top of her agenda, not just in her Department, but across Whitehall. The British Ports Association has today welcomed confirmation that Kelly Tolhurst MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Transport will be the Minister responsible for ports. Last month the BPA set out a number of priorities for the ports industry in 2020. A number of huge challenges await the Minister this year. In addition to the introduction of Freeports and new trade relationships, sustainability, the energy transition, connectivity, innovation, and safety will all be filling the Minister’s in-tray. The BPA was also pleased to see Rishi Sunak elevated to Chancellor last week, following his work with the sector on Freeports. Kelly Tollhurst was appointed as a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Transport on 13 February 2020 and confirmed today as fulfilling the maritime, aviation, freeports, security, civil contingencies and will shadow the roads brief. The BPA congratulates and welcomes Kelly Tolhurst to the best brief in Government. Having previous experience in the industry, we hope that the new Ports Minister will settle in quickly and take up the mantle from her predecessor as an enthusiastic champion of the UK ports sector and the wider maritime industry. Now is a pivotal time to take on the brief of maritime minister, with the current consultation on Freeports. Post-Brexit trade-facilitation is also high on the agenda, as well as sustainability and port connectivity. We look forward to meeting Ms Tolhurst at the earliest opportunity and building a constructive relationship based around a shared vision of a thriving maritime industry generating prosperity in coastal communities and across the UK. Commenting on the appointment, BPA Chief Executive, Richard Ballantyne, said: Sea News, February 20 We are thankful to Nusrat Ghani for her enthusiasm and hard work as Ports Minister for the past two years, and wish her well in future. last_img read more
