Law against animal abuse adopted

The Senate voted late Thursday morning the bill against animal abuse, in the compromise version established by a joint committee at the end of October. This text has already been adopted by the National Assembly on Tuesday. The almost unanimous vote of the Upper House (332 votes in favor, 1 against and 10 abstentions) therefore seals the legislative course of the bill and its final adoption.

Supported among others by Senator Cazebonne, when she was still a member of the French nationals established in the Iberian Peninsula and in Monaco, this text provides for a series of prohibitions, in particular as regards the exploitation of wild animals in traveling circuses and dolphinariums. It consolidates the supervision of the sale of domestic animals, in stores and online, and strengthens the penalties provided for in cases of abandonment or mistreatment.

« When I was vice-president of the study group on animal conditions at the National Assembly, I myself co-signed this bill with my colleagues from the LaREM group. She was then adopted on January 29, 2021.«

Samantha Cazebonne on her Facebook page on November 18

A “Historic stage of the fight for the animal cause”

It was September 29, 2020: the Minister for the Ecological Transition, Barbara Pompili, made several announcements concerning the end of the detention of wild animals in France. She evoked ” a major turning point for wild animals in our society« .

More than a year later, on the menu of this vast text, the progressive prohibition of wild animals in circuses and dolphinariums, the sale of puppies and kittens in prohibited pet stores and tougher penalties for abuse or abandonment. The LREM-Agir majority, which ardently pushed for these provisions, boasts news ” historic stage of the fight for the animal cause“, In unison with the protection associations.

A legislative compromise

The chances of passing this bill seemed slim, as there were so many points of disagreement between deputies and senators. “I have never had to examine a text under these conditions”, regretted to the attention of the government Sophie Primas, LR president of the Senate Committee on Economic Affairs, denouncing “a dogmatic text to be media”, “Poorly developed, without and sometimes against professionals”. This was, moreover, one of the main fears of the Senate; that the various restrictions desired by the majority do not penalize many players.

Thus the proposed law does not attack ” animal abuse as a whole“, Lashed out at MPs Olivier Falorni (Liberties and Territories) and Bastien Lachaud (LFI), according to whom the hunt in particular” will have been particularly cajoled »During this five-year term. ” The day will inevitably come when, in this hemicycle, we will be able to debate delicate questions, such as certain hunting practices, such as bullfighting, such as certain breeding practices. Intensive, wants to believe Mr. Dombreval.

Practical measures

To avoid impulse buying, a ” certificate of commitment and knowledge Will be issued before any acquisition. The sale of puppies and kittens in pet stores will be prohibited as of January 1, 2024. The presentation of animals in windows will no longer be permitted. The sale of animals online will be better regulated.

In terms of strengthening penal sanctions, the fact of deliberately killing a pet will be an offense and no longer a simple contravention. Those convicted of mistreatment will have to follow an awareness training course. Those who will be prohibited from keeping an animal will be entered in the wanted persons file.

Main initial bone of contention, the fate of the thousand wild animals in the current 120 traveling circuses was the subject of a compromise. It will be prohibited to present them to the public within two years, and to detain them within seven years. ” How we are going to feed our animals for seven years and at the same time initiate a retraining, it is impossible“, Retorts William Kerwich, president of the union of the capacities of the circus and spectacle animals. ” This is an arbitrary law because there is no animal abuse in our circuses“, He told AFP
