Swiss voters reject lawyers for animals

Referendum to Appoint Special Attorneys for Abused Animals Is Voted Down

Also FTA:
Switzerland tightened its laws two years ago and now has among the strictest rules anywhere when it comes to caring for pets and farm animals.

The country's 160-page animal protection law states exactly how much space owners must give Mongolian gerbils [233 square inches or 1500 cm2] and what water temperature is required for African clawed frogs (64-72ºF).

It stipulates that pigs, budgies, goldfish and other social animals cannot be kept alone. Horses and cows must have regular exercise outside their stalls and dog owners have to take a training course to learn how to properly look after their pets.
