Change to animal related offences.
Change the way people are punished for every animal related offence. They should be more severe.
Why is this important?
This is very important to everyone because we need to play catch up with the rest of the world when it comes to how people are charged for animal related crimes. A family pet is like a family member to most people and when someone hurts or steals your pet, or even worse, its very hard on the pet owners and families. Our family dog got stolen and we got her back a week later thanks to a few tip offs. It was very stressful for all of us and the children were very upset about it, so were our friends and family. My heart goes out to all the pet owners that have had their animals stolen or are still missing theirs. Also the animal lovers/owners that have had their pets hurt by others. These criminals are not getting what they deserve in court and its time to make a change.
