Minister of Justice, New Zealand Government: Harsher penalties for animal abusers

      S Dale Bowman

      Christchurch, New Zealand

Every day in New Zealand animals are tortured, harmed and killed. The small percentage of people that commit these crimes against animals that actually make it to a court room are more often than not given inappropriate and minimal sentences. This does nothing to deter others from committing crimes against animals, nor does it provide any justice for those animals that are harmed or killed, often in horrific circumstances. With the latest court ruling allowing two men who were found guilty of slaughtering 33 dogs to walk free with nothing more than a slap on the hand it is time for the public to let the government know that we do not accept the continued lack of justice for animals in New Zealand. Harsher sentences for animal abusers must be brought in immediately. Please sign and share with your friends and together we can try and bring about change and protection for those who cannot protect themselves.

      We have become a cruel and ruthless society, lacking in humanity and compassion, when we maim and kill the gentlest and most trusting of creatures.

      Harsher penalties are needed everywhere, in every country for animal abusers. I'm glad to sign this petition to send a strong message that animal abuse will not be tolerated.

      I will do that in my country as well, any petition I come across will be signed and shared.

      "El amor de los animales es un impulso universal, un espacio común en el que todos nos podemos encontrar. Amando y entendiendo a los animales, tal vez nosotros los humanos podamos entendernos" Louis J. Camuti
