    RUSU Policy on Animal Cruelty


      <b>Student Voice Believes:</b>



      1) RUSU should not support the abuse of animals for sport/entertainment.</br>

      2) Activity groups that actively contribute to the abuse of animals should not be affiliated to RUSU as the promotion of animal cruelty is in direct opposition to the beliefs of a number of students.</br>

      3) Horse Racing, Fox Hunting, Greyhound Racing, Game Shooting and any sport involving the direct death of animals/cruelty to animals and events such as animal circuses, should not be supported or promoted by RUSU.</br>


      <b>Student Voice Resolves:</b>



      1) That activity groups that support, promote or endorse animal cruelty will not be allowed to affiliate with RUSU.</br>

      2) This includes but is not limited to; horse racing, greyhound racing, fox hunting and game shooting.</br>

      3) All new societies, not listed above, will undergo a review by the RUSU Activities Officer in consultation with the Environment & Ethics Officer to determine if the proposed society is in breach of this policy.
