The law is based on five freedoms that would actually do a lot for animals — if the Act lived up to them.
In desperation it may attempt to gorge out it's own insides out with it's antlers, or bash itself against a tree and search for water, often dying in the water and being carried for kilometres, into an area thought safe from poison, and there a dog, raptor or scavenger may die also from eating part of it's toxic carcass.
Section 30 A of the Animal Welfare Amendment Bill also clearly states that A person commits an offence if the person wilfully ill-treats a wild animal or an animal in a wild state.
As an insecticide, kills the food source of many small birds, and can kill through secondary poisoning of native owls and falcons. Heightened awareness that we are on the verge of many more extinctions through poisoning has inspired private and independent research, which is falling on deaf ears.
Poison free New Zealand believes every animal has it's place in the environment, some introduced species continuing the job of extinct natives. All of our predators and so called pests in New Zealand have been introduced to New Zealand in earlier times to perform an economic use with the exception of rodents.
Why in New Zealand are children indoctrinated at a very early age that some animals are good and some are bad? In New Zealand we see and hear of many cases of outright cruelty of live animals and disrespect of the animal's corpse.
Studies have shown for many years that there are serious and often fatal links between animal cruelty by children, to criminal offending towards humans such as rape and homicide when those children grow up with cruel minds.
This is the mentality behind shooting pet cats with bow and arrow, burning alive puppies and kittens and many of the horrors reported to have been bestowed on companion animals and pets over the years.

In this TV news video, 1minute in a child says he sees no difference between shooting a possum and throwing it around as sport, to poisoning and rodeos, all good fun, prizes and the possum is dead so it doesn't mind?Both the animal rights group SAFE and the Royal New Zealand Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) recently called attention to an incident in which several baby possums (also known as joeys) were drowned at a fundraiser at Drury School in South Auckland.
To skeptics of animal rights, however, the line between such new rights proposals and traditional welfare theory, or classes of rights proponents, are distinctions without a difference. Either way, animal advocates seek to extend greater protections to animals, protections that might come at the expense of humans.
The New Zealand Animal Law Association is a coalition of lawyers improving the welfare and lives of animals through the legal system. An ammendment to New Zealand law on behalf of the The Animal Welfare Amendment Bill, which was passed on Tuesday, states that animals, like humans, are "sentient" beings.
The Animal Welfare Act is the law that is supposed to protect every animal in New Zealand. The law is based on five freedoms that would actually do a lot for animals – if the Act lived up to them.
