Stop Slaughtering Dogs and Cats for Meat

Target: Yasonna Hamonangan Laoly, Minister of Law for Indonesia

Goal: Work for a national ban on the dog and cat meat trade.

Over four dozen dogs were rescued from an alleged dog butcher in Indonesia. They were the lucky ones. Around one million fellow canines become part of the country’s still-existing dog meat trade annually. The animals endure brutal captures and grueling trips crammed into cages, deprived of their ability to even open their mouths. These cruel incidents are just the beginning. Once the dogs reach their final destinations they await slaughter, spectators to the horrors that will soon befall them. Those horrors include bludgeoning and burning. Sometimes, the dogs are still alive for the last sick step in the ritual.

Indonesia has made weak attempts to curb the practice of butchering dogs, which mostly now exists in more rural regions of the country. They banned the consumption of dog meat and made stronger penalties for dog trafficking. A few areas have also made selling dog meat illegal. Yet a national ban on the dog meat trade (and cat meat trade) has not been pursued, despite repeated calls from animal rights activists.

Sign the petition below to urge Indonesian leaders to take this decisive step that could abolish a pervasive form of mass animal torture and cruelty once and for all.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Laoly,

Indonesian leadership must recognize the brutality of the dog and cat meat trade, as recent court rulings and bans on consumption and trafficking have indicated. Yet the practice still remains widespread due to lax enforcement of existing rules and a complete lack of prohibition of these trades at the national level. As a result, horrific videos depicting the sick realities of the industry continue to emerge and enrage individuals across the country and around the world.

Please listen to the calls from these concerned citizens for a national ban on industries that trade in unimaginable cruelty and slaughter.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Stop this horrific and evil vile practice on these poor animals…it’s absolutely fucking disgusting and cruel and no need for this

  5. It’s evil and sick that Asian countries condone this!!!

  6. I don’t care how poor someone is. There’s no excuse for torturing and killing cats or dogs.

  7. These vile,mentally deranged ugly slant eye dog and cat killing scumbags most definately must be exterminated.We need to unite together to turn these repulsive scumbags into feriliser!!

  8. No animal should ever be killed inhumanly. Cats and dogs are being tortured to death and no one is enforcing any laws prohibiting it. Actually putting these people in jail may be the only deterrent. This is abhorrent and sickening behaviour by these individuals who do not care for animals or your laws. Please do something now to stop this. It does not make your country look good.

  10. Animals shall NOT be VICTIMS of sadistic human psychopaths! This ANIMAL HORROR must END!! Cats and dogs are MAN’s BEST FRIENDS since time immemorial and shall be LOVED and RESPECTED.
    SHAME on you, Indonesia, the country of disgusting animal-haters and animal abusers.

This includes using animals as test subjects in “so called” scientific research for medicine and testing for cosmetics and medicine!! Quit using tiger bones and bear bile as medicine!! Quit using Civet Cars poop as a coffee product! Quit skinning cows, goats, cats, dogs, rabbits, snakes, crocodiles and other animals for leather!! Quit raising factory farm animals for meat and dairy!! Quit torturing and killing bulks fir entertainment!! Quit using horses fir carriage rides in central park!! Quit killing donkeys for medicine and leather!! Quit breeding animals for sale as “pets”!!!

  12. Joyce+O'Malley says:

    Quit torturing – killing – eating – dissecting – testing – animals all over the planet!!! Animals need rights like people and should not be used as food or product!!!

  13. These CRUEL, TORTUROUS, STUPID INDONESIA IDIOTS SHOULD BE ONE TO BE KILLED CRUELLY AND EATEN & NOT INNOCENT DOGS AND CATS!!! STOP ALL THIS CRUEL ANIMAL CRUELTY IMMEDIATELY!!! I will NOT buy any clothes made by Indonesia for the rest of my life!!!!!

  14. Agree all comments get these cruel fuckers and do it to them. What type of people are they laws need to change now. Kill them all who us invoved in this horrific cruel practice. These people should not be on earth.

  15. Michelle Stewart says:

    All dog, cat, and horse meat trade must be made illegal all over the world

  16. I don’t care how much people will argue that this is ‘cultural’. Pets are pets and livestock is livestock. Cats and dogs are not for eating. And, of course, livestock also should not suffer, that much is absolutely certain.

  17. How about… STOP BREEDING!! These countries that eat dogs & cats are all over populated! There’s not enough food for all these “people”. Therefore they resort to dogs & cats, and most likely any other thing on four legs! Ummm… ignorant idiots…if there isn’t enough food for you.. why are you reproducing? If they’re not intelligent enough to figure this out, they certainly aren’t civilized enough to at the very least, do this humanly. Disgusting! Makes me ashamed to be a part of the human race. With any luck, after they’ve run out of innocent, pure animals, they’ll eat each other into extinction.

  18. This is beyond disgusting. STOP IT Now! Take a stand, Minister!
    There are no words for this depraved lowest shit level of human behaviour.

  19. 😠☹☹ Yes that would be great!! Hope they all die who kill these precious beautiful animals & who eat them!!
