Animal cruelty is a CRIME according to the Criminal Code of Canada. However, convicted animal abusers rarely receive anything near the maximum penalty available under the law. This petition is meant to draw attention to the fact that we want the courts to take animal cruelty seriously and enforce maximum penalties. In addition to the harm caused to animals, animal abuse is often taking place in conjunction with other criminality, including violence toward humans. Animal abusers are a threat to society, and sentences for animal abuse should reflect this reality. Please sign and share this petition to help ensure that, if someone is found guilty of this brutal abuse on Ryker and Phylo, they will not walk away with a simple slap on the wrist.
