Enforce Pennsylvania Animal Cruelty Laws · Change.org
Mary Robbins started this petition to Office of the Governor Governor Tom Wolf and 3 others
The signing of this petition would ensure your voices are heard, by the governing officials. That you wish to see laws enforced as well as to ensure harsher penalty for those who abuse animals.
Since animals can’t consent or fight back to sexual assault. It should be considered rape. We’re asking for either an emendation to the current Pennsylvania animal abuse law or to draft a new one.
FBI study shows that animal cruelty leads to other forms of abuse. Our laws are lax, they need to be more stringent.
”A crime is a misdemeanor of the second degree if it is so designated or if a person convicted thereof may be sentenced to a term of imprisonment, the maximum of which is not more than 2 years, or if it is an offense declared by law to constitute a crime, without specification of the class thereof, if the maximum”
it should be 5 to 10 years with a higher fine as well as having the right of owning a companion animal taking away…
If our laws continue to be lax individuals will repeat the crime. On top of this, it only shows that the majority of officials thinks animals don’t deserve fair rights. Animal Rights aren’t a joke, animals deserve better they deserve to be treated fairly and with respect. Animal Abuse shouldn’t be a ”misdemeanor”, it should be a felony.
