Cats must be microchipped under animal care plan

Microchipping pet cats will become compulsory under a wide-ranging new animal welfare bill.

Environment Secretary George Eustice told the BBC the policy would be monitored by vets and enforced in the same way as it is for dogs, which he said has led to over 90% compliance.

The bill will also formally recognise the sentience of many animals.

But Mr Eustice said this measure was aimed at pets and livestock, rather than wild animals.

The government's Action Plan for Animal Welfare also includes measures to ban exporting live animals for slaughter, the keeping of primates as pets and importing hunting trophies.

In addition, remote-controlled training collars for dogs will be outlawed and the government will look at banning the sale of foie gras - a food made from the livers of force-fed ducks or geese.

Mains water supply in Agia Efimia highly likely to be off tomorrow, Thursday, from morning to end of working day due to essential maintenance.

Road access to Koroni beach, near Katelios, should be re-instated in the near future.

Around 2/3 of Skala buildings connected to 'new' mains drainage system.

Remains of the Roman villa in Skala not received NSRF funding but the Mycenaean tholos tomb in Tzanata, Poros, has.

New pontoon in Poros should be capable of hosting thirty yacht-size craft. Plan is to have water and electric hook-ups available.

Dog dies after being kicked and thrown over a fence

A man from Nottingham has been banned from keeping animals after he kicked and threw his dog over a fence - and avoided getting her veterinary treatment for her pain.

The Cavalier King Charles spaniel later suffered heart failure, and was unable to breathe, so vets had to make the decision to put her to sleep.
