Please, everyone, flood the Premier of Victoria's Facebook Page with messages! He erases them as fast as he can but we won't be silenced! He will be held publicly accountable for his actions this way. As a Veterinarian he should have more compassion for animals and as a leader he should be wiser in choosing his battles. Battling against specific breeds of dogs, much loved family members, is not a wise choice, Mr. Premier. Animals should be judged by their DEEDS, not their BREEDS! Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/DenisNapthine Thank you, in advance, for your help.
KERSER was seized, at 8 months old, because he went into a next door neighbour's backyard. His mom, Jade, had just moved in and hadn't noticed the fence needed reinforcing. Kerser, a curious pup, got out. The neighbour
then called animal rescue to take Kerser to the local RSPCA (Australia).
The Australian Government has Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) that specifies that the council has the right to seize a dog in Australia if they believe it to be a restricted breed. Since Kerser looks like a Pit Bull, he is scheduled to be put to death. He is not a Pit Bull and has never harmed anyone. He is getting punished for the way he looks.
Kerser is very friendly and loves human companionship. He's not even 2 years old yet.
Kerser is not alone in his struggle to survive. Rocket and Mylo are 2 more victims of BSL slated for execution, whose owners are in ongoing legal battles for their lives. None of these loving companion animals have shown any signs of aggression and are valued members of their human families.
Kerser was scheduled to be "humanely euthanized" Monday, the 3rd of June at 5pm, but thanks to the overwhelming support of the public, at the last moment Kerser received a temporary stay of execution while his case is reviewed once again. He still remains incarcerated and his life still hangs in the balance. There is a new hearing set for June 25, 2013.

The Premier is undoubtedly hoping that the public furor over this issue
will die soon so he can quietly execute these innocent puppies in peace.
Please help us send a clear message to the Premier and the rest of the world that we won't stand by and let more innocent furry family members be murdered. The world needs to recognize that animals, just like people, should be judged by the DEED, NOT THE BREED!
