Falling Behind An International Comparison of Canada’s Animal Cruelty Legislatio

This report locates and explores commonalities and distinctions between Canada’s animal cruelty legislation and that of thirteen other countries around the world: Austria, Croatia, Great Britain, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, South Africa, Switzerland and Ukraine. These countries were chosen because each has federal legislation, detailed information about their legislation is easily accessible on the World Wide Web, and because the legislation is available in English.
