Petition Against Cruelty To Animals

Greetings once again!

I came across this site, thanks to Dan. Now, people a lot of you have pets of your own. Would you like to see any form of cruelty to animals. This is a very good petition raised to increase awareness as well as update the existing laws on cruelty to animals. The aim of the petition is stated below:-

Animal lovers all over Malaysia petition for a pro-active government stance on the prevention of cruelty to animals by passing effective and deterrant legislation:-

1 - Increasing the cruelty fine from RM200 (since 1953) significantly higher to around RM 10,000.00 and increase jail time.

2 - A life time ban on animal ownership for those charged with cruelty to animals - animals therefore cannot be returned to the owners.

3 - To urge the public to be responsible pet owners - spay/neuter their pets, adequate food, space, exercise, love and mediacal attention and to be considerate neighbours.

So people, do your thing! Get onto the site & please sign the petition. The law has to be reformed.
