AUSTRALIANS in rural and regional communities are just as concerned about battery cages as their city counterparts, according to a recent study.
Research commissioned last year by the RSPCA found 82pc of rural Australians and 72pc of Australians in regional centres were concerned or very concerned about battery cages.
The figures compare with just over 74pc of Australians in capital cities.
Furthermore, around 80pc of rural Australians and almost 83pc of Australians in regional areas want battery cages phased out – compared with around 84.5pc of people in major metropolitan areas.
RSPCA Australia senior policy officer Dr Jed Goodfellow said the revelations fly in
