Demand Maximum Penalty for the Men Who Hacked Up a Puppy

From Care2 Petition Site

Sign the online petition here demanding the maximum penalty under the Animal Care and Protection Act of $75,000 or two years in jail for the videotaped mutilation of a seven-month-old Fox Terrier puppy. Unfortunately, the maximum penalty ever handed out for "similar" prosecutions until now has been a four-month jail term.

INFORMATION

Hardened police officers have been shocked by the horrifying torture, mutilation and brutal slaying of a seven month old fox terrier puppy near Mackay at the weekend.

If found guilty, they could face up to two years in prison. Police have obtained video footage from a mobile phone which shows graphic images of the puppy yelping and howling in terrible pain as it hacked to pieces with garden shears and a pocked knife.

They said the owners were too distressed to talk to anyone about it.

The pup's nose was cut off, his front right leg and rear left leg were cut off and it was decapitated. A three-part video series on a mobile phone shows the dog being tortured.

The maximum penalty under the Animal Care and Protection Act for such an offence is $75,000 or two years in jail; however the maximum penalty ever handed out has been a four month jail term.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
