HUNDREDS of Hongkongers marched during a rally in early May to demand better government policies on animal rights in response to many cases of animals being abused and involved in hit-and-runs.
An online social media group organised the protest, which started at 2pm in Southorn Playground in Wan Chai (灣仔). The protestors marched to Chater Garden in Central (中環), saying that they want the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (漁護署) to stop putting down strays.
In addition, the demonstrators asked for the government to set up laws specifically for animal protection. They also want traffic laws related to animals to be expanded. Another request is for the police to set up an animal protection team and enforce current animal-related laws better.
