Chen Jiaohua said that many industry operators have not applied for permission for animal performances, and called on the government to strictly implement it, and the Council of Agriculture should actively establish a system for laboratory animal veterinarians. Lai Hui mentioned that in some night markets in the south, rabbits are used as gifts, but this often leads to tragic breeding methods, such as: throwing aside, one meal and one meal, so I hope that the Council of Agriculture will amend the law in the future to prohibit live gifts. There should be a set of patterns to follow. Wu Xinying appealed, don’t raise them impulsively, don’t make quick decisions, this is a lifetime responsibility.
“Using a living body as a gift, he doesn’t know how to love”, Chen Tingfei emphasized, because it was given as a gift, so she must practice the law as soon as possible.

He also used this budget negotiation to propose a main resolution, asking the Council of Agriculture to launch a publicity campaign on the issue of abandonment caused by impulsive purchases. , and submitted a report, and the Council of Agriculture followed suit.
In this regard, the Pet Management Section responded that the Rabbit Raising Guide is currently in progress; the amendment to the law prohibiting live game gifts is currently included in the law and is in the administrative process; the management method for animal exhibitions is currently being revised, and temporary exhibitions and other activities will be added in the future All will be included in the application for a temporary performance permit.
