An­i­mal cru­elty high in sub­urbs

Southern Telegraph - - News -

New data re­leased by RSPCA WA has re­vealed Bal­divis, Rock­ing­ham and Man­durah are among some of the worst sub­urbs for recorded cases of an­i­mal cru­elty in WA.

In sup­port of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s ground break­ing 20for20 cam­paign launched last week, the RSPCA WA’s lat­est data shows the three sub­urbs were con­tin­ual hotspots for an­i­mal cru­elty.

Lo­cally Bal­divis was the worst sub- urb so far this year with 29 re­ported cases of cru­elty while Man­durah had 21 and Rock­ing­ham had 20.

The fig­ures don’t bode well for Bal­divis in par­tic­u­lar, with the sub­urb top­ping the charts in 2016 as Perth’s num­ber one spot for cru­elty with 116 cases and a fur­ther 87 in 2017.

So far in 2018 the only sub­urbs worse than Bal­divis were Mid­land and Ar­madale each with one more case of re­ported an­i­mal cru­elty.
