Just because they can't say anything, doesn't mean we can be abuse to them They show us love and they deserve love in return. It is just downright inhumane and certainly criminal of the worst sort.

I could not agree more with this cause...dogs, cats, birds, any animal are living, breathing creatures and they feel pain both physically and emotionally. Animal abusers have to be stopped...period!

As a psychotherapist, I can tell you this is very true. It often starts with a reactive attachment diagnosis in children (kids who are abused/neglected and moved from foster to foster home) and by the time they're teenagers, they usually have a "conduct disorder" diagnosis and are getting pleasure from hurting animals. It is dangerous to see children or adults (esp. adults) being cruel to animals, because if these adults will harm animals with no remorse, they will definitely harm humans...

Anyway, no matter what their diagnosis is (antisocial/ sociopathic), they can choose NOT to hurt animals and they deserve the full extent of punishment for harming animals.

I agree that anyone who abuses an animal is a cold, callous human being and that they are more likely to hurt women or children eventually. This is an epidemic that must be stopped!

I agree whole heartedly. People who abuse children and adults, don't even think twice about abusing an animal. They don't realize animals do hurt, they know when you don't like them, they have fears, and abuse to an animal is no different than abuse to a child or adult. Abuse is abuse no matter what and needs to be stopped and that can only be done hopefully with harsher laws.

The laws for animal welfare and protection must be transformed, elevated and enforced worldwide, if we are to evolve as a society. The perpetrators who abuse animals and the innocent who are defenseless are dangers to society in every respect and should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent.

I'd sign this till the cow's come home! if america can get this through your senate, hopefully australia will follow.we have the same abuse going on here.you tell the aurthorities here about an abused animal and they wait for 3 complaint's before they act on it, too bloody late by that stage for a lot of them.these bastard's WILL have their judgement day, sooner or later, if they come near my lot they will get sentenced, if you know what I mean, i will not be waiting for the "aurthuritie's". good luck with your petition!

IT SHOULD BE CALLED TORTURE AND MURDER:::: I AM SURE THAT A LOT OF GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS OWN ANIMALS :::: WHY SHOULD THEY CARE? THEY CAN'T MAKE MONEY OFF OF IT :::: DOGS DO HAVE FEELINGS AND THEY LOVE AND THEY THINK AND THEY CARE ::::
