What would you do, if you saw a guy walking a 4 month old husky puppy. Then you saw that guy, for whatever reason pull the puppy up by the leash, choking it? Then you watched in horror as he slammed it against a fire hydrant and kicked it?
You'd probably want to do the same to the guy.
This actually happened, earlier this month in Windsor Ontario. I would like to tell you the dog was taken away from the man. But, it actually had to be euthanized because it was hurt so badly. And the guy in question will likely slip through the cracks like SO MANY people who abuse animals and get away with it.
Wanna know why? The majority of OUR representatives in the House of Commons just voted in favour of a SHITTY animal "protection" bill (s-203). One that lets guys like this go unpunished. I know - I don't get it either. Every major animal rights group, many of our MP's and thousands of Canadians who signed petitions wanted a different bill to go through (C-373). One that TRULY protects animals..but the majority won, obviously. And our voices just weren't loud enough.
My MP, Marlene Jennings, voted against the crappy bill. I'm proud of her for doing it and you better believe I'll remember this come election time.
If you don't know who your representative is, you can find them here:
Then you can find out if your representative voted for, or against the bill by clicking here.
Then, by clicking the "Take Action" button in the lower right corner - you can sent an automatic letter of thanks OR a whatthehellwhereyouthinkingdumbass letter. It's all written for you and everything.
Please forward this to everyone you know. It's embarassing that as Canadians, we are allowing cruelty to animals to continue to go unpunished. Why are we so behind on this? Why aren't our representatives hearing us?
We obviously need to speak a little louder. So - please take a moment and help.
