Peter Walsh has demonstrated everything people have complained about in the past about his decisions concerning animal welfare! He is dangerous and a disgrace to his position and frankly this calibre of person is unsuitable to function in any government anywhere! Victorians need to get this politician far away from animals because animals are quite frankly in danger under his management! His contempt for the lives of animals is inexcusable and unacceptable and hopefully in a democracy, ...

Peter Walsh has demonstrated everything people have complained about in the past about his decisions concerning animal welfare! He is dangerous and a disgrace to his position and frankly this calibre of person is unsuitable to function in any government anywhere! Victorians need to get this politician far away from animals because animals are quite frankly in danger under his management! His contempt for the lives of animals is inexcusable and unacceptable and hopefully in a democracy, their rights can be respected by having him removed from his position so Victoria doesn't regress back to the dark ages in the way animals are treated.

Are you totally out of your mind Peter Walsh? Are you an elected official or someone who was just given a position in the government and doesn't have a clue as to how to do it? If you don't know how to do it, I suggest you resign and give the job to someone with a brain. Kill puppies with a hammer, perhaps someone should do that to you and rid the planet of another fool. I am posting this atrocity on facebook and you had better believe you and your office will be inundated with emails or...

I am posting this atrocity on facebook and you had better believe you and your office will be inundated with emails or phone calls from people who care about animals. You are not worthy to breathe the same air as these animals.

I sent my letter! of course dogs are more than breeding machines, and they need our constant love, attention and respect. Let's make sure laws are enacted to protect them!

doesnt sound too inhumane. one good swing and the dog is put down, everyone crying about this dog should turn inward and think if they just like joining the band wagon or if they really do care about humanity. Donate to the poor, stand up for someone that cant stand up for themselves. Try to make eye contact with five people and get them to smile. I dont even remember who invited me to this 'cause', but they obviously dont know me cause id use a hammer too if thats all i could afford. I...

I wouldnt like putting down my dog but it is the most respectable thing i could imagine a dog owner doing when your old pup is in more pain than anything. oh, and dogs arent people and dont have the same rights as me or you.... i just had to say that since i knew it stir someone up, theres always one.

So according to you one doesn't need to give animals a thought, they and their pain are irrelevant to you. How shocking. True humanitariand feel both for animals and people. You disgust me.

Dear Sir,

After reviewing the verbal interview regarding the puppy farms.....
I was in tears just visualizing the act. This is one of the most INHUMANE acts I have Ever heard of. Any one with compassion for animals would know better. This statement is NOT a person with compassion for an animals life. It is straight BARBARIC!

Any person who would give the approval for this kind of act should not be in any position of animal welfare.

I may not be a Victoria citizen, but I am a person who...

I may not be a Victoria citizen, but I am a person who truly cares about the suffering and cruelty that animals receive each day by the hands of CRUEL Heartless humans. This kind of act should NOT be aloud. I would Pray that this judge is changed for the greater good. Please consider the Cries of the Animals and the people as they are Receiving Blows to their Heads of the Humans that they needed the most.

To the Honorable Peter Walsh: I have just been informed of the new law you are proposing. Please tell me that you can't possibly be considering ruling it to be humane to kill a dog with a hammer. Dear God, what has this world come to!  How much more barbaric are we humans going to get before someone with common sense and compassion stands up and says STOP!  And why do these poor innocent dogs, who want nothing more than to love and be loved, have to suffer for our inhumane acts. Isn't there...

It will lead to more and more atrocities. I beg you, please search your soul and do NOT legalize the murder of these poor defenseless dogs.

This is in protest against your statement that dogs can be "humanely" killed with hammers.
In one sense you are right..cause only "humans" are depraved, evil and soulless enough to talk about murdering an innocent defenseless animal...with anything!! I guess you're all for clubbing baby seals..crush videos etc huh? That's pretty "humane"!

You should not be in a position of power...you shouldn't have animals within a hundred miles of you..I sincerely hope you don't have children..1..to...

You should not be in a position of power...you shouldn't have animals within a hundred miles of you..I sincerely hope you don't have children..1..to teach them wrong..and 2..to pollute the gene pool!
You should immediately resign and get therapy! Tho there is no cure for empty blackness inside of you! You're a psychopath! Look up the definition!
You're a disgusting human being, do us all a favor and eliminate your presence from the planet.

Yours "truly",
A disgusted thoroughly ashamed member of the human race!

They say every village has an idiot, but the village of Victoria,Australia has thousands of them. How is this considered humane? It's an act of violence.
