  1. Hi Just reading the excellent ebook on your site by McEwen. Any chance I could copy the link to my FB page where I halots of animals rights/activists who would be interested in reading the book?

    Also do you have a number of barristers co ordinating BAWP in Qld? However my main area of interest is ending the live export trade.

    Kind regards

      I am so sorry we did not get back to you when we should have via this reply. There has been a shortage of hands on deck for a while – however things are starting to shift again.
      Thank you and I think Katrina would love to know about your interest.

      kind regards,

    • I have passed on your inquiry and will get back to you soon. We have had a shortage of hands on deck for quite a while now!
      Sorry for the delay – you can download it from the website, I guess you realised that?

  2. Hi – my family is trying to get representation for our case with Domestic Animals Services (DAS). Our dog Darthy was taken away for a minor offense. Since being in the DAS compound 24/7 without any exercise or decent food for over four months. They now want to declare him dangerous. They want us to apply for this license. We are defending this claim. After viewing hundreds of excellent dog training videos, I am 100% convinced that no dog is dangerous, just untrained. My family is extremely upset and our health has suffered as a consequence of this matter. We love Darthy and miss him. He is fearful being at the compound. It isn’t a friendly place. Even the rangers look sad. At the hearing which is soon (18th Dec 2017) we want to appeal to the tribunal that we can, to their satisfaction train Darthy to be a better dog. Is there any barrister or lawyer that can help us with presenting our case to the tribunal. I can give more information if needed. This is urgent. I have sent emails to all the barristers/lawyers but got no response. Thanking you in anticipation
