Thisbook focuseson animal laws and animal welfare in major jurisdictions in the world,including the more developed legal regimes for animal protection of the US, UK,Australia, the EU and Israel, and the regulatory regimes still developing inChina, South Africa, and Brazil. It offers in-depth analyses and discussions oftopical and important issues in animal laws and animal welfare, and provides acomprehensive and comparative snapshot of some of the most important countriesin the world in terms of animal population and worsening animal cruelty. Amongthe issues discussed are international law topics that relate to animals,including thelatest WTO ruling on seal products and the EU ban, the Blackfish story and USlaw for cetaceans, the wildlife trafficking and crimes related to Africa andChina, and historical and current animal protection laws in the UK andAustralia.

In doing so itdraws more attention to animal protection as a moral and legal imperative andto crimes against animals as a serious crime.
