Animal abusers face no consequences: NGO shows lack of support

Animal abusers face no consequences: NGO shows lack of support
Apr 5 2023 Share

Associations for Abandoned Animals took to social media highlighted various cases of abandoned dogs out in Malta’s streets to highlight the abuse and lack of resources for animal welfare. 

The NGO said that they are not pointing fingers at Animal Welfare as the problem is much nigger and higher than animal welfare.

‘The lack of resources is massive, the apathy to change laws is terrible, the many ‘important’ people hindering improvement is worse and we could go on. But if we stay silent, we too will be complicit.’ 

‘Right now, there is going on some great rescues by animal welfare and we of AAA take in so many of them. In terrible states, with extreme medical neglect and all abandoned.  But none of their owners are fined or taken to court.’ 

The NGO highlighted how abusers are free to abuse new victims in Malta with no consequences, going on to showcase various examples of poor animals who suffered such abuse. 

‘We have sent enough emails and called enough. We simply do not have the time and energy to continue asking for justice. And we are in no way minimising the great job most people in animal welfare do. The problem is higher up.’

UK could introduce wristbands which change colour if drink was spiked

UK could introduce wristbands which change colour if drink was spiked
Apr 5 2023 Share

The UK could roll out ‘Date Rape’ wristbands, which change colour within two minutes of being exposed to a drop of a drink which has been spiked. 

The police are set to test out the new wristbands which only require a drop of a drink from a straw to work. They will immediately change colour if the drink contains ketamine, ecstasy and common date rape drug GHB which causes drowsiness.

The wrist band still cannot identify every drug but Essex police are hoping to trial it out to see if these can be distributed across the country should manufacturers be interested in producing them. 

The need for this technology comes as drink-spiking offences have reportedly soared in recent years in the country. 

Under the Sexual Offences Act 2003, it is illegal to administer a substance to someone with ‘intent to overpower that person in enable sexual activity with them’ and could land offenders up to 10 years in prison. 

In 2016, Essex saw 60 recorded drink-spiking offences. This jumped to 354 in 2022, which an increase of around 490%.
