Upon reading our last issue of the Wildlife Watch Binocular in which we lauded President Tsai of Taiwan for her courageous advocacy of animal protection, Marilyn Evanson, a longtime member of Wildlife Watch, wrote to thank her.
The President’s office sent back the following:
Dear Ms. Evenson:
This is to acknowledge receipt of your July 12, 2017 email to thank President Tsai and this government amending the Animal Protection Act, which makes animal cruelty a more severe crime. We appreciate your encouragement. It has been this government’s set policy to raise public awareness of animal welfare and the importance to protect animals from cruelty and abuse. We understand there remains room for improvement, and will make an all-out effort to fulfill the tasks ahead.
Office of the President
