Target: President of the United Arab Emirates Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan
Goal: Penalize drivers who intentionally run over the dozens of cats being dumped out on the street.
It’s been reported that an alarming number of cats are being killed on the streets of Abu Dhabi in recent weeks. One man, who says he’s already rescued ten — and had a dog dumped on his doorstep last week — stated that he sees dead cats on the streets every day. He’s also seen 30 to 40 cats roaming a local park where they’ve recently been dumped off. Some have already begun working towards remedies for spaying/neutering and helping get strays off the streets, but in the meantime, these cats are being violently harmed and killed. People have reported witnessing drivers deliberately running the cats down just to hit them.
These innocent animals are not always capable of surviving being thrown into harsh weather conditions and without regular food and water, much less being used as target practice by the demented drivers who are running them over.
This insanely large level of cat cruelty is beyond cruel. People must not be allowed to continue this cruelty. Demand that those found guilty of killing and hitting the innocent cats be penalized to the maximum extent.
Dear Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan,
It was brought to our attention that an alarmingly large number of cats are suddenly being dumped off — and many of them killed by humans just for fun — in the streets of Abu Dhabi.
We can’t stand by as hundreds of cats are being used in the most cruel and demented manners by local citizens who are reportedly running them over intentionally. This shows a disturbing lack of regard for life and it must not go unpunished. We urge you to implement security measures and start penalizing anyone found harming or hitting the cats intentionally.
[Your Name Here]
