To: The French, Mexican and United States Governments
Please stop this senseless abuse to innocent puppies and kittens. French Islander, Mexican and yes American fishermen and hunters are using LIVE puppies and kittens as shark and alligator bait!! No living being should have to undergo this torture and insurmountable fear! This is inhumane and must stop NOW. Together we can make a difference and let our voice be heard as ONE. Please sign this petition and please pass this along. Thank you for caring. Blessed be ^;^
Currently the penalty is only 2 years and a little over$5,000 USD that is far too little for such a heinous crime. We urge that you raise the penalty to 10 years in prison with NO parole and a fine of $100,000. As well as offering a reward of $10,000 for turning in the offenders, which will come from the fines collected.This will hopefully act as a deterrent and will stop these horrendous acts against innocent animals FOREVER. Please do the right thing and help us stop these people.
Islanders on the French controlled Reunion Island have been using live dogs as shark bait.
The Sun claims that “a six-month-old labrador pup was recently found alive with a huge double hook through its snout – like the dog above – and another through a leg.”
It is also claimed that local fisherman have also been using kittens!
Reunion Island is an overseas départements of France and an official region of France, giving it the same status as a province or state in other countries.
