Estonian Society for the Protection of Animals as protector of the weak
Animal protectors who have joined the voluntary Estonian Society for the Protection of Animals worry not only about pets but the welfare of all animals, including wild animals and farm animals.
For instance, people have been informed of the condition of hens kept in cages, and advised us to purchase the eggs of hens kept in the open. The Society has made public several cases involving cruelty towards farm animals. Animal protectors consider the biggest animal protection problem to lie in the fragmentation of the particular area between a large number of authorities and agencies, starting with state authorities and inspectorates and ending with local governments. The Estonian Society for the Protection of Animals has therefore proposed to establish a single national animal protection board to handle animal protection and animal welfare issues.
