CONSERVATIONISTS SEEK QLD BATS PROTECTION

Conservationists are calling on the Queensland government to ensure the protection of flying foxes in animal cruelty laws.

The government introduced laws to parliament on Tuesday to remove an exemption in animal cruelty laws for traditional hunting of dugongs and turtles.

Agriculture Minister John McVeigh said the laws brought a consistent standard for animals.

"All Queenslanders will now have the same animal welfare obligations and it's important every Queenslander understands animal cruelty is never acceptable," he said.

But conservationist Carol Booth said a separate government plan to overturn a ban on shooting flying foxes in orchards is inconsistent with this principle.

"The shooting of flying foxes was banned after the government's welfare advisory committee evaluated the evidence and found it was inhumane," Dr Booth said.

"We demand that the same animal welfare standards apply to flying foxes as to other wildlife."
