CHANGE LEGISLATION FOR INSUFFICIENT PUNISHMENT FOR ANIMAL CRUELTY
This petition is dedicated to a pet border collie named Cody, who on August 26, 2012, was taken by two 21 year olds who doused her in lighter fluid and set her on fire. Cody, horribly burned, found her way home where at once her family rushed her to the vet in desperate hope of saving her life. After two weeks of intense treatment, Cody's injuries proved to be beyond repair and she was unable to survive the trauma, leaving family and friends devastated.
The abusers have been arrested but have been released on police bail pending further enquiries, and the laws that would punish them are highly insufficient,here in Northern Ireland. (Welfare of Animals Act (Northern Ireland) 2011.) the 1972 Act, the penalties were three months in jail and/or a £5,000 fine on summary conviction. In the 2011 Act, that will increase to a maximum of six months in jail and/or a £5,000 fine on summary conviction, and up to a maximum of two years in jail and/or an unlimited fine on conviction by indictment. We need your help to get this law changed before Cody's attackers go to court. By signing this petition you are standing with tens of thousands who are seeking Justice for Cody as well as other victims of animal abuse, and demanding that the punishments for these horrific crimes be harsh and long standing.
Animals deserve rights but have no voice. We are their voice, it's loud, and it's going to get louder. Please sign this petition.
It's not working.
