LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has welcomed the Federal Government's announcement that animal extremists could be fined up to $420,000 for trespassing on private farming properties – but says more needs to be done by the Palaszczuk Government at a state level.

"I welcome Minister Littleproud's announcement which will crackdown on animal extremists who illegally use personal information to attack our hard-working farmers," Ms Frecklington said.

"The state LNP Opposition stands strong with producers and call on the state Labor Government to act before more homes and businesses are endangered.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to listen to the calls from producer groups for stronger powers for police to protect our farmers from militant activists.

"It is simply unacceptable that fringe groups have been exploiting personal information to terrorise Queensland families and their livestock.

"The activities of extremists endanger both humans and animals."

LNP Shadow Minister for Agriculture Tony Perrett also backed AgForce's call for firm action from the Palaszczuk Labor Government to act.

"Annastacia Palaszczuk needs to beef up trespass laws and give stronger powers to the police so they can actually penalise these offenders," Mr Perrett said.

"This has all gone too far. The Palaszczuk Labor Government has to draw a line in the sand and put an end to this disgraceful extremism."
