How to deal with animal-related complaints and concerns in New Zealand
Animal complaints and concerns are a common occurrence in New Zealand. There are a variety of reasons why someone may make a complaint about an animal, ranging from the animal being a nuisance to it being a danger to the public.
The first step in dealing with an animal complaint is to contact the local council here . The council will then assess the complaint and decide what, if any, action needs to be taken. The council may take a number of different actions, depending on the severity of the complaint. For example, they may issue a warning to the animal’s owner, they may order the animal to be removed from the premises, or they may take legal action against the owner.
If the council decides that no action needs to be taken, the complaint will be closed. However, if the council decides that action needs to be taken, they will contact the animal’s owner and inform them of the complaint. The owner will then have the opportunity to respond to the complaint and take action to resolve the issue.
There are a number of ways to resolve an animal complaint. The most common way is for the owner to take action to address the problem. This may involve changing the way the animal is kept, such as providing more food or water, or increasing the amount of exercise the animal gets. It may also involve changing the animal’s environment, such as providing a more spacious enclosure.
If the owner is unable or unwilling to take action to resolve the complaint, the council may take further action. This may involve ordering the animal to be removed from the premises, or it may involve taking legal action against the owner.
