Thank Mexico City Lawmakers for Establishing Anti- Animal Cruelty Laws

Target: Mexico City Lawmakers

Goal: Thank lawmakers for instituting punishments for those who commit crimes against animals

Animal cruelty is a major problem in Mexico City. In the past few years, police have documented cases where animals were kicked, thrown, shot, dragged behind cars, and set on fire. In the United States, perpetrators of these crimes would be given a jail sentence and a hefty fine. However, Mexico City has no anti-cruelty laws, and people who commit animal abuse are considered only minor offenders. They do not face jail time and are rarely required to pay fines.

This is all about to change. Recently, lawmakers in Mexico City agreed that people who intentionally commit crimes against animals should be heavily punished. Their ruling stipulates that if an animal is hurt, the perpetrator will receive two years in jail and a $500 fine. If an animal is killed, four years in jail and a $2,000 fine will be the punishment. Furthermore, if a person wishes to slaughter an animal to eat, he or she must not cause that animal any undue pain.

Overall, these new laws and penalties are very beneficial for the creatures living in Mexico City. Now, if someone shoots a poor stray dog on the street, that person will go to jail instead of just getting a slap on the wrist. Because of this change, residents will, with any luck, be discouraged from committing any new crimes against animals in their neighborhoods.

This decision is groundbreaking in a country where animal rights laws are not well-defined. Now that Mexico’s largest city has anti-cruelty legislation, other communities will most likely follow suit. Soon, the entire country will level serious punishments against those who intentionally abuse and hurt animals. Thank Mexico City’s lawmakers for taking this great step towards protecting animals in their city.

PETITION LETTER

Dear Mexico City Lawmakers,

As you are well aware, animal cruelty is a serious issue in your city. Animals are often kicked, thrown, shot, dragged behind cars, and set on fire, and the perpetrators are rarely punished.

However, thanks to you, this is all about to change. Because of your recent decision, animal abusers will be considered serious criminals instead of simply minor offenders. They will receive jail time and hefty fines, and their behavior will not be taken lightly by police.

Your decision is wonderful news for the animals of Mexico City. Hopefully, the fear of these harsh punishments will deter people from harming creatures in the future, and the streets will become far safer. Also, with any luck, other communities in Mexico will follow your example and establish their own anti-cruelty laws. If this happens, the entire country will begin to level serious punishments against those who intentionally hurt animals.

Thank you so much for taking this great step towards protecting animals in your city.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Это радует,что законодатели приняли закон о защите животных. А в России никак не примут такой закон, уже больше 10 лет,рожают депутаты, и все никак. Просто стыдно за Россию.
