After snatching a crucial seat in the upper house of the NSW, glamorous vegan bodybuilder Emma Hurst has proposed new, powerful plans for the state.
The Animal Justice Party representative, who has been a vegan for 19 years, wants to stop the production of eggs in Australia, transfer the dairy industry to & # 39; vegetable farming & # 39; and use contraceptives to reduce kangaroo population.
It also promises to ban puppy farms, prohibits caged chickens, improves the quality of life for dairy cows and stops deforestation to protect and protect the Australian koala population.

But she also admitted that there would be challenges.
& # 39; The dairy industry is very tough, of course with the treatment of the calves, the constant fertilization of dairy cows, the constant cruelty & # 39 ;, she told The Daily Telegraph.
She said that dairy farmers struggling to make ends meet should be kicked out of the industry with an exit scheme.
& # 39; Hopefully that is something we can work on with regard to a basic dairy product scheme to support farmers and help them switch to plant-based forms of agriculture. & # 39;
The politician of the Animal Justice Party also shared her plans for the chook industry.

& # 39; The first step is to remove chickens from cages … I think the consumption of eggs will decrease over time, just as people seem to change their eating habits slightly, & # 39; she said.
The vegan politician also said that she & # 39; tough & # 39; new anti-puppy agricultural legislation would propose phasing out the practice.
When it came to killing kangaroos, she said she had a humane and cost-effective process.
She claims that the use of non-lethal solutions such as immunocontraceptives, darting and desexing kangaroos is a cost-effective and cruel way to keep the population under control.
She also supported recent strikes in climate change, in which thousands of schoolchildren flooded school all over the country to protest against the coalition's lack of action.

She said that the future generation on this planet will have to live longer than hers and that should justify having a voice in how it is treated.
