Tell Baltimore to Educate Police on Animal Abuse

      Honolulu, HI

There has been a rash of crimes committed against animals in Baltimore. These acts of cruelty range from the three children attacking and killing an 8-week-old puppy with belts and sticks, to a 13-year-old stoning a dog to death, to a pit bull being doused with gasoline and set on fire. 

While the city's Anti-Animal Abuse Task Force found that Baltimore has decent laws regarding animal cruelty, local police are often unaware about what the laws are and apathetic about enforcing them. This has to change.

Tell the Baltimore Police Commissioner to follow the advice of Task Force member Randall Lockwood and institute at least four hours of training in animal abuse investigations and cruelty law.
