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 :
Immediate revision to the current legislation, to increase the penalty from RM200 to RM50,000 and a mandatory jail sentence
That dog-catching is carried out solely by municipal workers under their respective municipalities, who will be held accountable for their actions
The methods employed in catching and transportation will follow 'DVS Humane Guidelines 2008 on Catching and Euthanasia of Stray Dogs'
Stricter enforcement and active prosecution on cases of animal cruelty by the DVS
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

marty, can we develop this further? see question I asked you above. I am not a fan of Coe#&ttrb8230;voted against him I did…and I heartily concur that the law exempting fracking from local planning control (which is otherwise the norm in PA I don’t know how this relates to other states) is a travesty. but is there a good source for objective information about the impacts of fracking in PA?

Darksiders 2 does look more interesting than the original, if only because I’ve seen some screenshots of it that featured colours other than grey. Th71eRre;s a chance I might pick it up in the future despite my experience with the original, but that day is some way off when my existing backlog of “cheap games bought in sales that have never been played” is something like 40 games long.
Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bomriakkong and checking back frequently!

Angel wing, very interesting piece on that &qro&;ueboottquot; you were discussing. Do you think that might be a good rabbit hole to go down and see what other connections they may have? Its like P-tech, is a company funded by a company out of Israel that is owned by mossad. Now P-tech was in charge of those flights of the military that never showed up on time. See what I mean? That was a great rabbit hole someone went down. lol

I live in Joliet, Il.It has an ordinance that identifies anything including ch&78reni#d21l;s toys as a firearm if it propels an object. I lost over $500 in landscape and spent over $300 in rabbit control until I used a bb gun which is exempt as a firearm under Ill. statues until the police threatened to cite me with the ordinance violation. The rabbits are destroying my garden and I have no recourse. This Joliet ordinance is unconstitutional and the city provides no alternative to eliminate the problem.In fact even traps are illegal. What can I do. I need help.
