PETALING JAYA: Animal welfare education in schools will nurture Malaysians to be a more caring society, says Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye.

The SPCA Selangor patron fully supported the proposal for animal welfare education to be introduced as a subject in schools, calling it a long-term plan to prevent animal cruelty.

“We cannot tolerate any cruelty against animals.

“It is totally unacceptable and unethical”, he said.

“As the education will foster knowledge, understanding and develop responsibility towards animals, there will be a significant change in the way animals are treated,” said Lee in a statement yesterday.

Lee also called for prompt action to form the Animal Welfare Board aimed to raise public awareness on animal welfare.

The board should monitor how organisations are caring for the animals to prevent possible trauma or pain.

On the issue of local authorities handling strays, Lee called on the authorities to come up with a humane stray management plan.
