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
Around the time that I had this short discussion with a co-worker, Greg Friese was issuing the 12 in ’12 Reading Challenge for EMS Profisseonals.Â I really liked the idea, and will be sharing a brief review of each EMS book I read this year.

hello, what is a coach supposed to do?A coach can say hello, exchange quick plrieanteass and move on.This assumes that the story in the article is accurate.The anecdote about BG reeks of a planted swipe against BG. Note that the writer tried and convicted BG in the same paragraph by declaring the meeting a recruiting violation.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appeacietrd. Thank you

These muffins are great for brsekfaat, and they are not to sweet. But I think it is enough to eat one of them, because after that I was full. They pleased me the best the second day. Thank you for this recipe.

Does equating what happened before I was legal have any impact on the fact that a crime was committed? As Rocks pointed out you did it to us we will do it to you. Does this solve the problem? Does this eliminate racism? Racism is racism no matter who is doing it, and this type of thinking will never solve the prem.oblWhitey hurt me, I hurt whitey, then when whitey gets back in power will he hurt you again? This is why the Arabs and the Jew are still fighting after 4000 years, neither is man enough to say that was then this is now.A crime is a crime no matter who did it and who is in power when they did it.

Minua kiinnostaisi juttu mahdollisimman ekologisesta ehkÃ¤isystÃ¤. Kondomit eivÃ¤t taatusti hajoa luonnossa, mutta ovat ainoa tapa ehkÃ¤istÃ¤ tauteja. PillereitÃ¤ kÃ¤ytettÃ¤essÃ¤ osa hormoneista kulkeutuu vesistÃ¶Ã¶n. EntÃ¤ spermisidit, hoinkmikreruoka, ehkÃ¤isykapseli ynnÃ¤ monet muut?
Looks like this debate has changed McCain's game plan to the "Support Joe the Plumber" campaign.How long until they link Joe "the plumber" Wurzelbacher with Robert "went to jail ala Keating Five" Wurzelbacher (also a Keating in)g-wa.Relardless I'd have to say Joe the Plumber is more qualified than Sarah the prom queen.

Thank you for your sensible critique. Me & my neighbour were preparing to do a little analysis about that. We bought a very great e-book on that matter from our local library and most books the place not as infunelsive as your data. I’m very glad to see such facts which I was searching for a long time.This made very glad! Anyway, in my language, there usually are not a lot great supply similar to this.

A credit ratnig comes from borrowing money and your willingness or ability to repay. Typically if you borrow and aretagemrnn(usually a contract) is made to repay. If you repay as the contract calls for or you pay early, you ratnig will improve. In every instance if you pay a agreed, that’s all that’s needed to get a good ratnig.In certain instances(with collateral involved) other factors could effect your ratnig. Example-you may be required to maintain insurance. It’s a slow process so be patient.References :

...Priceless. You know there's nothing these confederate state wingnuts like worse than a negro sassing them. At least someone in this administration isn't afraid of putting a bit of well-needed perspective out there.Talking points ernesto. Do you say anything original? How about sticking with what was said and what it means instead of the over oft used geaolnrizatiens that are nothing but childish rants.

Meistens verplanen sich die Adventswochenenden von ganz alleine, eine Weihnachtsfeier hier, ein Besuch da… ich hab aber bereits vor Jahren angefangen, PrioritÃ¤ten zu setzen. Weihnachten sollte sich um besinnliche Zeiten und Menschen drehen, die einem wichtig sind – und nicht um 100 HÃt0Uichkei¶sbesuche̷f;lnd Geschenke versuche ich frÃ¼hzeitig zu Ã¼berlegen bzw. mit meinem Mann gibt es die Vereinbarung, dass wir uns nichts schenken – auÃŸer Zeit fÃ¼reinandern – das waren bisher die ruhigsten und schÃ¶nsten Weihnachtsfeste :)LG Annika
