Fiji needs to look at 'big picture' of animal welfare

From , 5:03 am on 14 May 2018

There is a call for Fiji to look at the "big picture" when it comes to animal welfare after a dog was found with a large knife wound in its back.

The dog had to be put down after it was found with a 20-25cm-long cane knife wound that had cut through to its spine, a couple of days after it went missing from its owner's property.

Casey Quimby of Fiji Animals, told Tim Glasgow that while these incidents aren't necessarily common, Fiji needs to improve standards of animal welfare.
