MAKE DOG THEFT A CRIMINAL OFFENCE
This petition had 18,950 supporters
Dog theft has exploded in the last few years to the point that thieves are breaking into homes to steal animals and using physical intimidation and violence to steal pets from owners on the street.
This is because animals are not considered as anything more than a chair you might have indoors, in fact, if someone stole the chair the police would be more interested.
Pets are a lifeline to people who have problems, the only friend to millions of elderly people and sometimes the only reason they get up in the morning or go out and meet people.
The theft of an animal should be made a criminal offence with a minimum mandatory six month prison sentence plus an unlimited fine, We know stealing a dog is an offence under the theft act, however, the police rarely bother with property theft but it is our contention that dogs should not be classed as "property" but as another life form given they are thinking, feeling beings and companions, if a child is stolen the police make that an urgent investigation, whilst we do not equate a dog with a child's life or expect the police to turn out whenever a dog goes missing we want a "stand alone" charge of dog theft for use when needed by the police.
