1997
Abstract:
We are proposing to amend the Animal Welfare regulations to require that a perimeter fence be placed around the outdoor areas of sheltered housing facilities and outdoor housing facilities for marine mammals and certain other regulated animals. Although it has been our policy that such fences should be in place around sheltered and outdoor housing facilities for such animals, there have been no provisions in the regulations specifically requiring their use. Adding the perimeter fence requirement to the regulations for these additional categories of animals would serve to protect the safety of the animals and provide for their well being.
