Regional animal management summit set by McMillan team

A REGIONAL Animal Management Summit is being organised by a group of  people vying to be councillors.

Team McMillan announced today that they will host an inaugural Regional Animal Management Summit at the end of the month.

Having already committed to the immediate review of existing council animal welfare/ management policies, including the establishment of a new state of the art animal management facility, Team McMillan will now begin the important task of engaging with the region`s key stakeholders to determine the way forward.

Brett Wass from Team McMillan will chair the summit and made quite clear the vision that the proposed future council supports.

"We will not only honour our original promise to remove the current dysfunctional animal management system and turn it into something we as a region can all be supportive of, we plan to also incorporate our local wildlife rescuers into our construction plans, so they have somewhere to call home base as well".

"Imagine a facility where local school children or tourists can visit and see these champions of our community go about their task of nursing our wildlife back to health and then releasing them back into the wild or visiting the facility and  having educational discussions with CAA or the RSPCA about respect and responsibility for our domestic animals".

"At the end of the day, the proposed animal management facility will be something we will all want to boast about like a proud parent, not hide it away and pretend it does not exist, like we do now",Wass said.

Invitations have now gone out to the region`s key stakeholders, with Team McMillan's proposed "Regional Animal Management Summit" taking place on November 29.
