Target: Bill McKay, Mayor of Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
Goal: Issue maximum penalty possible to person whose dog suffered due to a dangerously tight choke collar.
A dog was reportedly found suffering from a severe neck infection due to a choke collar that had embedded so far into its neck that it had to be surgically removed. People from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said that the infection was so bad that the owners couldn’t have missed it.
If convicted, the owners of this dog only face a fine and a small two-year sentence, which is a slap on the wrist for someone who’s allowed their animal to suffer to this extent. A person who can watch their innocent animal endure such horrific suffering and not do anything about it should be charged with animal abuse and never allowed to own animals again. Demand that the owners of this poor dog be banned from owning animals and prosecuted to the fullest extent, if found guilty of abusing or neglecting this dog.
Dear Mr. McKay,
A dog was found in bad condition due to neglect and was wearing a choke collar that was embedded into his neck so far that it had to be surgically removed. It’s clear the owners of this dog must be heartless and neglectful.
Please join the stand against animal abuse. We urge you to help see to it that the owners be prosecuted, if found guilty of animal abuse, and held fully responsible for the suffering the poor dog must have endured.
[Your Name Here]
