Petition of some sort?

    IN recent weeks I have read some disgusting animal abuse stories in the local papers. I have been left wondering if there is more I/we can do to stop it. I am in the process of forming a petition to hand to our local MP at our dog show in May.

    If you would like to take a blank petition form and get it filled out then post it back I will get this handed over on the day.

    Basically I think we should campaign for "harsher penalties for animal abuse"

    Any feedback, advice, recommendations greatfully recieved - if you'd like to help email barkinthepark@live.co.uk

    Those are awful stories. I really can't understand how people can be so heartless and cruel :( There should definitely be harsher penalties for animal abuse but I don't think lashes are allowed now, only a comfy cell with a PS3 and free dinner.

    PETA are already campaigning for this.

    Their stance is to show that animal abusers go on the become abusers of humans. Their posters were taken down immediately. I would suggest joining their cause :)

    PETA report animal abuse campaign

    What we as animal lovers need to do is encourage more people to report animal cruelty and stand up in court as witnesses instead of turning a blind eye.
