As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, there have been zero successful animal management prosecutions. Two matters have been lodged with the court during the 2019/20 financial year, however they are yet to be heard. Indicator is replacing previous 'Animal management prosecutions' which was a measure of number, not proportion.
