Many animal rights issues have been fought in 2015, and there have been some pretty big victories for animals during that time.
Here, we shall look at the victories for animals in 2015:
1) No repeal
There could have been a repeal in the Hunting Act 2004, as the government set out to hold a free vote on the hunting act. Thankfully, they backdown.
As the SNP stepped in, and said they would vote against the government, and in favour of keeping the hunting act, the government new it would lose, so put on hold the vote.
Potentially they could have a vote in the future, as they only ''postponed'' the vote.
But in the mean time, it's a good year for the Fox!...and deer, and hare etc!
Scotland has a diffrent hunting act (Mammals Act), which bans Fox hunting, and other animals being hunted with dogs. However, it is not an outright ban. The SNP this month has said that it will be reveuing the hunting act, and potentially strengthinging the act, which could see an outright ban of Fox hunting.
Again, a great year for Foxes in Britain!
The New Zeland government followed many other governments this year and banned cosmetics testing on animals.
They did so after 15,000 people signed a petition, asking the New Zeland govenrment to stop animals being used in cosmetics testing.
4) No Seaworld Orca breeding
This year seaworld agreed to ban Orca breeding.
If seaworld breaks their agreement to ban orca breeding, then they will be banned forever for breeding Orcas.
5) Britian bans household animal testing products
This year seen the government banned animals being tested for houshold products.
There have been no animal tests since 2010 in the UK which saw animals being used in household product tests, however, it wasn't offically banned until this year
