A PLEA ON BEHALF OF ALL ANIMALS

Jane from Putaruru

The weather is very hot. The forecast is that it could be like this for the next three months. I would like to ask everyone with animals to provide shade and water at all times. It breaks my heart, when out & about, to see cows in paddocks, that provide no relief from the heat. Those cows are providing you with a living. Treat them with the concern they deserve please. Personally, I think MPI should make it mandatory for farmers to provide shade for their animals. ALL tethered animals should have water & shelter provided at ALL times.
Picture attached of many cows in the heat and only one tree for shade.
I hope my plea will make a difference, where needed.

Jan 15th. It's interesting to note that of the 18 "Thanks" received so far, all are from females! Surely there must be SOME guys out there willing to stand up for animals?
