Challenges In The Enforcement Of Animal Protection Laws In Singapore, Alvin W-L SEE 2014 Singapore Management University

Challenges In The Enforcement Of Animal Protection Laws In Singapore, Alvin W-L See

Research Collection School Of Law

Singapore has fairly powerful animal protection laws. In practice, however, these laws are only powerful to the extent that they are actually enforced. In Singapore, the low number of prosecutions for animal cruelty is a cause for serious concern. While there can be a myriad of reasons for this phenomenon, this paper argues that one primary cause is the insufficient understanding of what amounts, or may amount, to cruelty at law. This results in an unsound enforcement policy which reduces the protection afforded to animals. By highlighting this problem, this paper hopes to draw attention to the importance of the ...

Fact Sheet On Puppy Mills And Flea Markets, The Humane Society Of The United States

HSUS Puppy Mill Research, Reports, and Facts Sheets

Flea Markets are meccas for problematic puppy sellers. Since the USDA is now regulating commercial breeders who sell puppies sight-unseen over the Internet, flea markets are one of the last unregulated marketplaces for questionable puppy sellers, many of them unlicensed and uninspected. As a result, there has been an increase in the number of operators selling puppies at flea markets across the country—likely in an effort to escape government regulation.

An American Icon In Limbo: How Clarifying The Standing Doctrine Could Free Wild Horses And Empower Advocates, Nadia Aksentijevich 2014 Boston College Law School

An American Icon In Limbo: How Clarifying The Standing Doctrine Could Free Wild Horses And Empower Advocates, Nadia Aksentijevich

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

The American wild horse has long been considered a cultural icon and an integral part of the ecosystem. In recognition of the need for wild horse protection, Congress enacted the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act in 1971. Although the Act instructs Congress to manage the wild horse population by removing “excess” wild horses from public lands, it does not explicitly provide for the use of short- or long-term holding facilities as a means for removal. In considering the legality of the use of holding facilities in the service of wild horse removal programs that the plaintiffs deplore, two district ...

The Ninth Circuit Constrains Non-Enforceable Public-Private Endangered Species Conservation Agreements, Benjamin Hanna

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In 2009, Ruby Pipeline, L.L.C. proposed to build a 678-mile pipeline from Wyoming to Oregon that would cross through the critical habitat of endangered species. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Fish and Wildlife Service worked with Ruby to design a Conservation Action Plan consisting of voluntary measures aimed at mitigating the effects of the pipeline on nine endangered fish species. Relying on the plan, federal agencies approved the pipeline project. Environmental groups challenged the agencies’ decision to rely on a voluntary conservation plan. In Center for Biological Diversity v. U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the ...

Killing Two Birds With One Stone: How An Incidental Take Permit Program Under The Mbta Can Help Companies And Migratory Birds, Krisztina Nadasdy 2014 Boston College Law School

Killing Two Birds With One Stone: How An Incidental Take Permit Program Under The Mbta Can Help Companies And Migratory Birds, Krisztina Nadasdy

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), it is unlawful to kill a migratory bird “by any means, or in any manner” without a permit. The United States has interpreted the language “by any means, or in any manner” to include the incidental killing of birds. In conflict with this interpretation, however, is the fact that permits for the incidental killing of migratory birds are not issued under the MBTA. This current system hurts both migratory birds and the entities whose commercial activities might result in migratory bird deaths. Birds continue to die in large numbers while entities cannot acquire ...


Solving The Problem Of Puppy Mills: Why The Animal Welfare Movement's Bark Is Stronger Than Its Bite, Kailey A. Burger 2014 Washington University School of Law

Solving The Problem Of Puppy Mills: Why The Animal Welfare Movement's Bark Is Stronger Than Its Bite, Kailey A. Burger

Washington University Journal of Law & Policy

The relationship between man and dog is one characterized by companionship, service, and love; but dogs serve a variety of functions beyond just "man‘s best friend." These companion animals provide valuable assistance to people with disabilities, in military and police service, in therapeutic contexts, and in numerous other areas of life. With approximately 78.2 million pet dogs in the United States, and approximately 39 percent of U.S. households owning at least one dog, it is no surprise that so many animal welfare activists and organizations possess a deep passion for protecting and improving the lives of these ...

Stop Monkeying Around With Human Health: Moving Human Drug Development Into The 21st Century By Abandoning Animal Models, Validating Emerging Testing Methods, Updating Fda Regulations, And Issuing Fda Guidance, Elizabeth J. Baker 2013 SelectedWorks

Stop Monkeying Around With Human Health: Moving Human Drug Development Into The 21st Century By Abandoning Animal Models, Validating Emerging Testing Methods, Updating Fda Regulations, And Issuing Fda Guidance, Elizabeth J. Baker

Elizabeth J. Baker

The current drug development paradigm relies on in vitro testing and in vivo animal models to screen which drugs should continue the development process and be tested in humans. Data from animal models is a problematic screening tool for human drugs because it often cannot be transposed to human clinical testing, and most animal-based testing methods have never been scientifically validated.

The FDA will play a fundamental role in modernizing drug development because the FDA regulates and oversees drug development. Although the FDA has stated its concern with reliance on animal model data, and a need for a better drug ...

Time For Judicial Enforcement Of Esa Recovery Plans?... "When [Squirrels] Fly", Michael Deiulis 2013 Boston College Law School

Time For Judicial Enforcement Of Esa Recovery Plans?... "When [Squirrels] Fly", Michael Deiulis

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

In August 2008, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service published a final rule in the Federal Register officially removing the West Virginia northern flying squirrel from the List of Threatened and Endangered Wildlife, approximately twenty-three years after it was originally listed. The flying squirrel’s delisting proved quite controversial and many environmentalists challenged the agency’s decision for violating of the Endangered Species Act. The D.C. Circuit, in Friends of Blackwater v. Salazar, nevertheless upheld the FWS’s delisting decision, finding that ESA recovery plans merely provide non-binding guidance. This Comment argues that although the D.C. Circuit ...

The Thirsty Cattle Exception: How An Antiquated Law Could Dry Up Eastern Washington, Sean Hickey

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Groundwater is a scarce resource in the arid plains of the northwestern United States. Accordingly, its high demand by farmers and cattle ranchers has led to a series of laws restricting and governing its use. The Supreme Court of Washington recently ruled in Five Corners Family Farmers v. State that one of these statutes, drafted decades ago, allows for unlimited water to be used for the purposes of watering cattle. This Comment reviews the competing arguments of this case, and focuses on the method the court used in making its determination. This Comment addresses the plain meaning of the statute ...

North Dakota: Flipping The Bird At The Migratory Bird Treaty Act Since 2012, Krisztina Nadasdy

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) it is a federal misdemeanor to kill a migratory bird “by any means, or in any manner.” In 2012, three oil and gas companies operating in the Bakken region of North Dakota were charged with violations of the MBTA after dead and oiled birds were found in and around their oil reserve pits. In United States v. Brigham Oil & Gas, L.P., the companies challenged the violations by claiming that the MBTA applied only to conduct directed at birds, and not to lawful commercial activities that might result in the incidental death of ...
