Make animal cruelty illegal in China.

China is one of if not the worst country when it comes to animal cruelty, each year thousands of animals are brutally killed and in front of each other. Did you know regularly in China dogs are stuffed into small cages before being hanged up by their paws and skinned alive, this happens in front of other dogs and those dogs see what's going to happen to them and they start barking and wailing in fear and for what so some rich people can wear fur clothing? This has to stop every animal can feel pain people need to stop thinking that because they can't speak they can't feel either and that means we control them but we don't! Animals were here first this is their world not ours we need to respect them! In the photo attached to this petition you can see a dog very much still alive having a leg sawn off and there's more to come for that terrified dog and many other animals. Pets are actually stolen off of the street, taken from their loving homes and killed in the most painful ways possible. I am absolutely disgraced to be human if that's what other humans will do for no good reason. Some of us clearly have no humanity in us if we can do this to poor defenceless animals or just sit back and pretend it's not happening because it is happening... right now! So please be the right kind of human and have humanity, sign the petition do these animals good and pass it on so we have a greater chance of stopping this. Please help them, because they need you to care.

Justice for Ruby & Benji. Left Starved & Without Water For Weeks & Died Painful Deaths.

Maximum penalties for Ms Atwell’s actions need to be enforced. We need the RSPCA to appeal the Magistrates decision and enforce the penalties to set an example and get the message out, that it is ILLEGAL let alone inhumane to starve & abuse animals. These dogs died locked up in a laundry in their own vomit, urines and faeces without ANY food or water for 3 Weeks. Ms Atwell is a murderer and her actions have struck the entire nation with utter disgust, shame and sadness.  “Kelpie puppy Ruby and two-year-old staffy cross Benji were found dead without food and water in a home in Albury near the Victorian border. Their owner, Kimberly Thi-My Atwell, was on Thursday fined $144, ordered to complete 80 hours of community service and banned from owning animals for five years by Magistrate Rodney Brender.  Both dogs were rated one out of nine for health and were deemed to have died from a combination of dehydration and starvation.” “She displayed no concern whatsoever and noted the dogs could easily be replaced”. These laws need to be taken seriously & maximum penalties applied to offenders, our leaders nationwide need to open their eyes up about Animal WELFARE.  In NSW, the offence of committing an aggravated act of cruelty upon an animal carries a maximum penalty of 200 penalty units (each unit is $110 so $22000)  and/or two years imprisonment for an individual. A charge under this section can be brought by the Police, or privately prosecuted by bodies such as the RSPCA or Animal Welfare League (AWL).In NSW, a court can impose any of the following penalties for a charge of aggravated cruelty to an animal. Home Detention, Prison Sentence Intensive Corrections Order (ICO),Suspended Sentence, Community Service Order (CSO), Community Corrections Orders (CCO), Good Behaviour Bond, Fines,Section 10A, Conditional Release Order (CRO).  News Report-https://www.prime7.com.au/news/4614-dogs-starved-to-death

Australian Emu killer should get maximum penalty

Most of us have seen this man and his proud video footage pop up in our feeds over the last week with what can only be described as a harsh, cruel and callous rampage on at least a dozen of our own protected wild native birds. Leaving them little chance at survival and all while laughing and enjoying himself.  The common belief, is that our legal system is going to let us down again and we would like the government of Australia use this man as an example for other cruel hearted humans out there, who think this kind of behaviour is any kind of OK.  We insist that this man be handed maximum penalty for *at least*  1 of the 12 native birds he butchered with his ute that day especially considering the sadistic enjoyment of his slaughter.  Our justice system can not let Jacob MacDonald get away with his crimes by giving the man a slap on the wrist.   ANIMAL CRUELTY STOPS HERE!

RSPCA Charge the coward who abused his staffy. QLD make the laws to allow them to

We've seen the footage of the person attacking his staffy, it shows his licence plate, but the RSPCA says it's not bad enough to warrant charges. Why? What will it take to warrant charges? What goes on behind closed doors? Should we allow this charitable organisation not to act when reprehensible acts come to light, and so publicly?  They say their hands are tied - so we take this to the Government of Queensland too. Change the laws to help the RSPCA charge him, make laws to show you will not allow animal cruelty in any way. We ask of you RSPCA, find him, remove both dogs and charge him with animal cruelty. Prevent him from owning any animal again. This is not acceptable in any way, shape or form, and we will not stand for it

Make Animal Cruelty Illegal in Iraq

Iraq is one of the worst if not the worst country when it comes to animal cruelty. Each year thousands of animals are tortured, mutilated, and left to die slow and painful deaths in the streets by Iraq's most cruel and ignorant people.  With this petition we hope to raise awareness and to urge lawmakers to address this problem by enforcing new laws that protect animals rights and discourage citizens from inflicting such violence on these poor and innocent beings..  Please sign and share this petition to help put an end to this atrocity immediately. In addition to signing this petition, you may also take immediate action by writing an Email to Dr. Falah Hassan Zidan of Iraq, who is the official responsible for passing laws regarding the welfare (or lackthereof) of the animals of Iraq.Dr. Falah Hassan Zidan's email address: Minis_of_agr@moagr.org This petition was encouraged by a brave and honorable girl from Iraq named Rusul Alawade. She is 16 years old and she addresses you now: "My goal is to protect animals of all kinds in Iraq. The animals in Iraq suffer and scream but their voices are not heard. No one helps them. No one has mercy on them. People in my country have become ruthless. Dogs are being tortured and violated. "They are dirty souls!" This is what the Iraqis say because they believe that dogs are unclean and bring them diseases and should not be introduced into their homes but tortured and killed. You will not find a dog in all the streets of Iraq in good condition! He has been tortured. While the mother gives birth to her puppies, the children steal them at the same time. They steal her puppies and torture them to death or throw them into the river while they laugh at the mother dog and her deplorable condition. Dogs are being burned alive. They put poison in the food and feed it to the starving dogs and are happy when the dogs die. And I will talk about cats .. oh and what do I talk about ... pain? About suffering? A day does not pass without cats being tortured and beaten. Mother cats are treated the same as Mother dogs. The children steal her kittens and torture them in front of her. If a cat is caught sleeping it will be beaten! Children use stones to beat the sleeping cats and kittens. Black cats are the most oppressed. They believe because the cats are black that the cats are demonic and so they are used in the works of magic and sorcery. As you walk in the Iraqi streets will see animals that will make you cry because their bones have been fractured, their tails cut off, their legs are cut or they have only one eye and their bodies and faces are distorted because they have been beaten and burned. Many cannot even walk.... I see children chase these poor animals... Do you know the main torturer of those animals? They are kids!!! When they go out with their friends, they will start their fun journey in animal torture. They will run behind them, beating dogs and cats and cracking the little cats. They break every bone all the way to their tail. Adults also enjoy animal torture when they are not happy. And the animals are not only tortured in the streets, but even in homes. There are those who buy animals in order to torture them. Help us to get rid of the torment of traders, who trade in the souls of animals and who put mothers in cages throughout their lives without care and who give them little food and steal their babies.. As for the birds, some people catch them to kill the bird ..Even Flamingo birds when they came to Iraq have been caught and killed by Iraqi people .. I write this and I'm so sad. Help them. They do not have voices to express their rights. Please defend their rights .. Let us prevent injustice and issue a law that preserves the rights of these poor animals."

Charge Chloe Morgan With Animal Abuse and Restrict Her Right To Own Animals.

Following an incident involving Chloe Morgan and a grey pony the RSPCA have paid a visit to the young lady, family and pony in question. Due to the ponies having the basic care required by the RSPCA and not showing an serious behavioral side affects of long term abuse the RSPCA have decided not to press charges in relation to the incident. For all who have seen the footage of the incident in question this petition has been set up to express the concerns of the public for the welfare of any animal under the care/ownership of Chloe Morgan.Please as an animal lover sign, share and support this petition to help the RSPCA re think their decision to not press charges. Details and video links to the incident are below. The incident - the young lady inquestion(Chloe Morgan) attempted to sit bare back(no saddle etc) on a small grey pony while the pony was tied to what appears to be a stable block. The pony for what ever reason be it behavioral/health etc was not happy with this and bucked to throw Chloe Morgan off.Chloe Morgan then proceeded to use a whip to whip the pony repeatedly. The pony is clearly distressed and scared. Following multiple forceful whips from Chloe Morgan and unidentified man then kicks the pony twice. Link - https://www.facebook.com/bella.woodhouse.3/videos/1410322985661969/Wether or not you agree hitting/punishing an animal when it 'misbehaves' - j personally don't ever believe there is a need to - it is clear to all who witness this footage that this poor pony is suffering abuse at the hands of Chloe Moran. The family and friends approve of her behaviour which leads many to fear further abuse will follow. The condition and health of her animals does not change her actions seen in the footage of this incident. It is abuse. It must be stopped.We must speak for those who can not speak. Those who abuse animals should be charged fittingly as those who assault/abuse humans do.

Vehicles to stop if they hit/ run over a cat!

It has recently come to my attention that more and more cats are being knocked down and being left for dead on the roadside.  Within the last 6 month I have experienced 2 cats running out in front of my vehicle, luckily I was able to brake in time and not hit them. I have also whitnessed a cat being run over with my own eyes as I was driving down a country road late at night. The driver who hit this cat did not stop, however I did so, and found the cat had died suddenly from the impact of the hit. I was devastated that someone could be so inhumane and leave a poor innocent animal; someone's pet on the road for dead. I moved the animal out of the road and attempted to find the owner of the animal, I found that the cat did in fact belong to a farm owner, and they was devastated however so great-full that I had notified them on their pets death, as they would of been worried all night if their cat suddenly didn't return home and was missing.  Another incident I have experienced was yesterday. My own cat (tigger) who I have only had a few months had been knocked down, and again left for dead by the person who had knocked him down. However someone like me who whitnessed the incident was good enough to stop and move him out of the road, and stay with him as he passed away. Tigger was such a jolly little thing with his own little character, he loved the outdoors however still being young wasnt aware of the dangers of roads. He was not a cat who you could keep inside, full of energy and always wanting to go out exploring. However this come with consequences and resulted in tigger being knocked down. The thing that devastated me the most was the person who knocked tigger down, not stopping to see if he was okay, he could of just been injured and need treatment which would of saved his life, also I was not notified straight away I had to find out myself through social media a day to late!!! If only someone would of notified me of this the same day I wouldn't of been searching frantically for tigger all day, and it would of put my mind at rest.  I am aware of the law, and that you must stop and report an accident to the police if you hit any animal such as: dogs, horses, cattle, cows, pigs and goats. If furiates me that cats, the second most kept domestic animal is not on this list !! I can not come to terms with why this has not been changed. I believe if you hit any animal, you should stop and report this to your local police station, and animal welfare centre so they can act straight away, maybe save the animals life, and take the right action such as checking if the animal is chipped so that the owner can be notified straight away! It's just inhumane that such domestic animals are still being left for dead on the road side.  In memory of Tigger I want change!! Even if this gets the message across to others that if you believe that you have hit a domestic animal (someones pet) the right thing , the humane thing to do would be to stop! 'The tigger law' in memory of This little fella x

Prosecute the Pony abusers!

Recently a video surfaced on facebook of a young defenceless pony being viciously attacked. The attacker was Chloe Morgan of Llanelli she viciously abused an innocent pony tied to a wall. She was filmed striking the pony more then ten times with a whip because she was angry that the pony had bucked whilst she attempted to mount with no saddle. The pony bucking was due to her own lack of skills and the fact she is far to large for the small pony. The pony looked distressed and distraught. Repeatedly attempting to back away from the angry Chloe Morgan only to be relentlessly whipped and shouted out then further assaulted by the stable hand! This disgusting abuse was filmed by Chloe Williams daughter of the owners of the pony and the centre, Chloe Williams filmed this evil act and posted it on social media she thought it was funny. She also displays no remorse. Her father Paul Williams also abused the poor animal kicking the pony twice also witnessed at the end of the video . He should never be allowed to own or train people with animals again neither should Chloe Williams and especially not Chloe Morgan. Please sign this petition to make sure a prosecution is made! The RSPCA have visited the property and state there is an ongoing investigation. But according to the South Wales evening post when both the police and RSPCA visited they found no evidence of abuse. Yet we have all witnessed the evidence of abuse that the defenceless pony was subjected to and we want a prosecution! We pay/fund/support the RSPCA via donations to protect animals! We are aware they are a charity. We are aware of how many calls they receive. But we the people need to ensure that the RSPCA Protect innocent animals from the likes of Chloe Morgan, Chloe Williams and Paul Williams! Should this decision be out of their power then the government needs to make this happen! The police need to investigate! The CPS need to prosecute! These people need to be brought to justice!

See that Quokka kicker is rewarded with appropriate maximum 5 year jail sentence.

Animal cruelty is becoming more and more prevalent with social media being used to "show-off" and highlight cases where the abusers seem to be proud of their cruel and unnecessary behaviour. The latest case depicts a man on Rottnest Island near Perth, Australia violently kicking a Quokka (a type of marsupial) into a wall while the friend filming laughs at the cruel spectacle. The maximum penalty for this despicable action is 5 years in jail and a $50,000 fine but it is more than likely the men will face a much lesser punishment. In order to stop these needless and evil acts of cruelty a precedent needs to be set and I think that these men should receive the full force of the law. Please sign this petition in order to let our voices be heard in support of those who cannot speak.

Ban Bull Riding! Cruelty is not entertainment.

Recently, footage from the night of the 9/12/17 at the Adelaide Entertainment Center emerged showing the horrible treatment of bulls during a PROFESSIONAL, SOLD-OUT event. The bull BREAKS its leg, and proceeds to be pulled by its tail in circles until it is eventually taken backstage. This footage is SCARRING to children, and the supposed 'family' entertainment should be STOPPED. Personally, I can't sit back and watch as bulls are being unwillingly attacked and forced to race. By signing, we are hoping to stop the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) from hosting events in Australia ever again. Riders like Cody Heffernan are supporting this industry. By signing this petition, we can get the message out that this 'sport' is not OK.
