This article examines the current policy and legislative framework which regulates the welfare of introduced animals in various Australian jurisdictions. It considers how inadequate legislation, unenforceable codes of practice and negative community attitudes contribute to legalised acts of cruelty against unpopular animals. Building on nascent community and government concerns, the author proposes reform to achieve a more humane and effective system.
