ANIMAL WELFARE — DOMESTIC ANIMALS — KIMBERLEY

1119. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Minister for Agriculture and Food:

I refer to the ABC Kimberley story “‘Crisis Level’ means healthy puppies, kittens in the Kimberley could be killed if no-one lends a hand” from 25 August about the developing crisis in animal welfare in the state’s far north.

(1)  What proactive measures has the government taken, or does it plan to take, to reduce the ongoing demand for these kinds of shelters for domestic animals?

DOLPHINS — SWAN RIVER

962. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Minister for Environment:

I refer to the article in the Western Suburbs Weekly dated 22 August, titled “Deadly dolphin virus”.

(1)  Can the minister advise the house what research has been undertaken to investigate the cause of the five dolphin deaths reported to date?

(2)  Does the minister believe this poses a further threat to the existing population of the Swan River dolphins?
