Nowhere does the legislation state that they are exempted. Thats the part that is scary. If they decide to prosecute you, you cannot go on a newspaper report. It will hinge on what the law says.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

You are correct that it does not say that in the legislation, Bushviper. A process is underway to exempt racing pigeons and I am sure it will be successful. The department and the NSPCA were fast asleep in NOT considering the racing pigeon sport in this legislation.
