Stop Allowing Animal Abusers to Own Pets

Target: Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland

Goal: Don’t allow people who were convicted of animal cruelty charges to own animals.

A dog was allegedly neglected so badly by its owners that it ate its own tail. Yet, the couple accused of committing this disgusting act of animal cruelty will be allowed to own animals again in five years. The law needs to change so that people who are found guilty of animal abuse are no longer allowed to own pets in order to better ensure that other animals will not needlessly suffer.

The Staffordshire bull terrier was reportedly in so much pain that it had to be put down. Considering that the dog was apparently abused to death, allowing the responsible parties to own animals in the future is completely inexcusable. If this continues to be the case, more and more animals will suffer and die while in the care of callous owners.

People who abuse animals don’t deserve to own pets. Sign this petition to let government officials know that anyone who neglects or abuses their animals should not be allowed to own and abuse more pets after a certain time period has ended and that they should further be given lengthy prison sentences for committing such pathetic and heartless acts.


Dear First Minister Sturgeon,

Angela Todd and Martin Randall allegedly neglected their dog for so long that it ate its own tail. Unfortunately, they were only banned from owning animals for the next five years and given 200 hours of community service. Considering that the dog was reportedly so hurt it had to be put to sleep, allowing the accused parties to get off with such a light sentence is unconscionable. Furthermore, the fact that these people will actually be allowed to own animals again in five years is appalling.

Studies have shown that people who abuse animals oftentimes continue to display abusive behavior toward other animals and people. Because this is the case, people who commit such crimes should be completely banned from ever owning animals again. They should also have to spend a good amount of time in prison for committing such unwarranted and hateful crimes against helpless beings.

Animals deserve better than to be placed in the homes of people who have previously shown that they were not capable of taking care of them in the first place. For these reasons, we demand that you do everything possible to ensure that people who have been found guilty of abusing or neglecting animals not be legally allowed to ever own pets again.

    Animal abusers should be put to death, in an extremely painful, torturous way. I have not any mercy for them. Nor for people who harm human babies/children.

  4. People who abuse animals should be chained up to a tree with a heavy chain & no shelter& MAYBE some water uuùu8

  5. Diana Reid says:

    NO WAY should they be allowed anywhere near an animal, let alone own one!


  7. All animal torturers and abusers should be put to death in other words eradicated from this planet earth. That’s what should be done to the vile and heartless owners who neglected this precious dog so badly that this poor little fellow ate its own tail and eventually put to sleep because of the torture and suffering these psychopathic degenerate monsters committed against a defenceless and innocent sentient being. These psychopathic degenerate animal torturing monsters must not be allowed to own another pet or animal. As I said eradicate this animal torturing filth from this planet earth. This filth doesn’t deserve to live on this planet and breath the air.
    Kill the monsters slowly.

This is beyond horrific and heartbreaking — Crimes against animals MUST be taken seriously — there are way too many idiot-monsters loose in our world – — think of the suffering & cruelty inflicted on this sweet dog — Why allow psychos to get away with these brutal abuses — who do they think the ARE — we want NO repeats of abuse to and killings of animals, EVER ! — It must be declared from this day forward, these depraved sadists should NEVER again own animals nor be anywhere near them.

  11. Why not give children to child abusers too. There should be a website where these sick f+%$s should register as well. I want to know if one of these psycho creeps are my neighbor.
