  • Petitioned The UK Government

This petition was delivered to:

The UK Government

To change the law from Criminal Damage

    1. Petition by

      A C

      Enfield, United Kingdom

our pet's are usually very much loved members of the family & we are often left devastated by the natural loss of a pet but to know if someone killed our cat the only thing the police could charge the perpetrators with would be Criminal Damage, that is not acceptable & we are campaigning to get the law changed.

To:
The UK Government
To change the law from Criminal Damage

Sincerely,

      Yes, this is bull, animals may as well be humans, murder of anything should be life (and by life I mean life, not 25 years or whatever rubbish it is) !

      Killing pets intentionally ought to carry a stiff sentence--to teach abusers a lesson. Criminal Damage does not begin to serve justice!!! Felony does, or whatever your equivalent is in the UK. Also these criminals should pay the victim for their suffering. a pet is a member of a family!!!

      Because animals do not to be treated like criminals...they have rights. Animals bring joy and love to our lives....more then humans do..

      I have 7 cats and would be devastated if someone killed them so lets change the law to something other than Criminal Damage. It is still a life no matter what

      Pets are part of the family, the law needs to be stricter in this area. This is an area of public policy that needs revision
