I can amend this part of the PCA Act myself to read :
24 ( 1 ) A person responsible for an animal who causes or permits the animal to be or continue to be in distress commits an offence.
( 2 ) Subsection ( 1 ) does not apply if the distress results from an actvity that is carried on in accordance with BCSPCA approved
practices of animal management.
See how easy it is? So why can't the BCSPCA do this ? Wouldn't this carry more weight ? This would certainly make the BCSPCA more responsible and would increase their power to seize animals that are in distress.
