SHAKE-UP NEEDED IN MALAYSIA TO END ANIMAL ABUSE

Animal abuse and cruelty cases in Malaysia


To: The Prime Minister of Malaysia,

We, the undersigned, urgently request that you take the necessary steps to prosecute individuals, government or private entities which have caused unnecessary suffering to animals or neglected their welfare, based on contents of the Animals Act 1953 (Revised 2006).

Over the years, animal lovers have stood by and watched helplessly as municipal council workers handled stray dogs with brute force, pet owners neglected or abandoned their pets, zoo animals continued to live in deplorable conditions, and stray animals were maimed/killed by cruel individuals.

We earnestly urge you to act in all expediency to quash this kind of inhumane, arrogant behavior by Malaysians, as allowing them to continue will result in the needless suffering of hundreds of thousands of animals every year, and undoubtedly have a negative and detrimental impact on Malaysia's image worldwide.

In the last decade, only a handful of prosecutions have been initiated against animal abuse - making Malaysia a haven for animal abusers. The Department of Veterinary Services - an animal protection agency under the purview of the Ministry of Agriculture - has failed to act on the various cases of animal abuse highlighted by members of the public;

  • The recent viral video showing 6 Batu Pahat municipal workers using brute force on a stray dog
  • Deplorable conditions in zoos nationwide
  • Individuals who neglect their pets, or maim/kill defenseless stray animals
  • Various viral videos that have surfaced on the Internet of a poodle being hit repeatedly, a cat being set on fire in a cage, and a family of kittens being hit, kicked and stomped to death.

FBI research indicates that animal abusers are 5 times more likely to be violent in society. When they are not punished, they continue their abuse on children, women and society at large. Consequently, Governments all over the world have begun to take animal cruelty seriously by imposing punitive cruelty penalties and have encouraged Responsible Pet Ownership.


We call on the Prime Minister of Malaysia to ensure :
  1. Immediate revision to the current legislation, to increase the penalty from RM200 to RM50,000 and a mandatory jail sentence

  2. That dog-catching is carried out solely by municipal workers under their respective municipalities, who will be held accountable for their actions

  3. The methods employed in catching and transportation will follow 'DVS Humane Guidelines 2008 on Catching and Euthanasia of Stray Dogs'

  4. Stricter enforcement and active prosecution on cases of animal cruelty by the DVS

  5. That all pet owners are encouraged to spay/neuter their pets by adopting differential licensing i.e. cheaper license fees for spay/neutered pets and much higher license fees for unspayed/unneutered pets" and the promotion of Responsible Pet Ownership

  Dogs are homeless only because of the lack of caring and responsibility of people who do not spay/neuter them and/or dump them. They deserve better than abuse and death. People need to learn that animals are living beings who feel the pain and fear cause by them.

  I resent animal cruelty to the highest degree. What you are doing to the animals is abhorrent barbarically cruel and means that you have no respect for any living creature. I will not buy anything from your Country until you implement animal welfare law and stop the inhumane treatment of animals altogether. Shame on you and your Nation. It`s 21st Century nor room for stone age animal treatment! wake up if you want to be respected!

  I'm against animal cruelty. Animals do have feelings and they do feel pain like us humans. Let them live in peace. Wild animals belong to the wild. They have the same right like all beings. They are God's creation as well and they have the right on this planet, too! Animals are voiceless, but we are not. These people hurting and exploiting animals need to be sued! This is so cruel and heartbreaking! Help to stop this barbaric practice!

  Evil doers like that should be heavily punished. We have enough problems as it is in the world without people like that walking around abusing living things.

Every countries in this world really need to start taking animal abuses seriously.

Only people without compassion would do this thing to another being. Who knows when they would advance to humans.

And please put a ban on ever owning or working with another animal in future.

  Animals are Gods creation. Humans need to respect life. Love life, love animals. Give the animals some rights. Humans who hurt an animal.......deserves to be locked up. Love like Jesus said to do. Jesus NEVER killed an animal. They have taught me to be a kinder person. Animal abusers deserve to be locked up. Useless for the community.
