Avian influenza (bird flu) – From 14 December, there will be a legal requirement for all poultry and captive birds to be housed, or otherwise separated from wild birds. Click here to find out more.


It is important to monitor and investigate the treatment of animal health and welfare.

  • If you are concerned about the way farm animals are being transported or treated at a livestock market, contact trading standards.
  • If you see an animal on a farm in danger, distress, ill or injured, contact the RSPCA.
