Danish Minister Dan Jørgensen wants cruelty to animals to result in heavier fines or longer imprisonment of the offenders, and aims at strengthening the law on animal welfare and protection to enable tougher punishments.

The authorities are looking into ways of strengthening the Danish legislation on animal welfare and the plan is to present a new bill as soon as possible.

According to the current Danish law on animal welfare and protection, offenders may be sentenced to a fine or imprisonment for up to one year – and in the case of severe maltreatment up to one year of prison or two years if it is a repeat offence.
