"groups like the RSPCA or other animal welfare groups - or the government itself - couldn't sue people or business for mistreatment of animals."

Mistreatment of animals is a crime, so nobody should be suing anyone over it.

You could argue that animal groups should be able to recoup treatment costs but that would be the group itself bringing the claim not the animal.
