RSPCA to become less adversarial

Jonny Clark

16th May 2016

The new chief executive of the RSPCA has said that the charity is to become less adversarial in the future. This announcement comes as the organisation has been increasingly criticised for chasing convictions (such as prosecuting David Cameron's local Heythrop Hunt in Oxfordshire). In this article in the Telegraph, Mr Hunt has suggested that the RSPCA has made mistakes by pursuing such an adversarial approach in the past and will concentrate more on animal welfare in the future.

This suggests that the charity, as one of the most prominent animal rights pressure groups will be moving away from a direct action approach to more lobbying.
