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

  Dear Sir

I'm writing this letter to the PRo expressing my concern about the problem of pet abuse that has been occurring recently. I am afraid that my neighbour are treating their pet badly. Let me begin by describing the incidents of pet abuse that I am aware of.

This owner has not been feeding their dog, till it became very thin and started to eat grass and plastics from the rubbish bin. Lately The dog has been eating his own mess cause The owner didn t feed him.  The dog has chained all the time till it can sleep comfortably. The owner also not cleaning the dog till it has a stinky small on his body. 

To conclude both pets and humans are living creatures. So we human have no rights to ravage and torture then it so anything bad to them just because we own them.

Below is the address of my neighbour
20 ,  jalan  dato  dagang  2, 
Taman  sentosa , 41200  klang  
Selangor

Your action on this much appriacated.

  Animal abuse is inhuman. As a human, who had the ability to think rationally, it is best if we treat animals tenderly and with care. A law relating to Animal Abuse should be implemented to protect these lovely creatures.

  Dear brother abuser, animals are our brothers and sisters. They are creation of God. If you don't believe in God, I hope that you believe in humanity. Let us open our heart, love them as they have loved us and live together with us ever since the beginning of time.

  Give your respect to animal. Animal also have feeling better than human. They don't hurt you or kill you if you are not harm them. Even if they want to bite you because they want to protect their self. If you are not love animal, just make sure do not harm them. Leave them happy. YOU ARE NOT HUMAN IF YOU KILL OR HURT ANIMAL!!!!

  As a pet owner, I have no idea why those people can be so cruel towards animals. Animals are cute, they will not harm you if you did nothing to them, even its just a stray cat or dog. They never think too hurting human, why humans can do such things to the animals. Please be kind to animal, they won't hurt you without a reason, stop abusing them. May god help those pitiful animals.

  Please save the poor animals especially stray cats and dogs. I have seen a lot of these animals wandering in the city searching through garbage looking for foods.
