Target: Rod Knecht, Police Chief of Seaforth
Goal: Find and harshly punish whoever is responsible for illegally trapping a possum and killing it.
A possum reportedly had to be put to sleep after being caught in a metal rabbit trap that someone illegally set up. The injured possum was found in a garden, still dragging the trap behind it. The RSPCA Chief Director of New South Wales stated that the trap could’ve easily injured a child or a family pet.
Only a heartless and violent person would do something so cruel as setting a trap to capture an innocent wild animal. Something must be done to find and stop this person, who is a danger to to small creatures. Please add your signature to this petition to tell authorities to find whoever did this and bring them to justice before another animal, or even a child, is harmed.
Dear Mr. Knecht,
An innocent possum was reportedly caught in a metal rabbit trap. The animal was still alive, dragging the trap behind it, but the injuries were so severe it had to be euthanized.
This disgusting act of cruelty and callousness is illegal and it must be treated like the heinous crime it is. We urge you to do everything possible to ensure that whoever did this is found and punished to the most severe extent.
