					STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY PETITION
This petition is addressed to The House of Commons in Parliament, specifically
requesting that legislation like the former Bill C-50 be reintroduced.

Bill C-50: Tougher penalties for Animal Abusers. Known in past years as Bill C-
17, C-15, C-15B, C-10, C-10B, C-22 (Rejecting Bill S-213)

ATTENTION: MYRON THOMPSON – MP
THE HOUSE OF COMMONS IN PARLIAMENT

        Recently in Didsbury, Alberta there was a horrific case of animal abuse.
“Daisy Duke”, a Border Collie-Black Labrador mix had her legs duct-taped
together, her muzzle duct-taped shut, she was beaten with a shovel. A plastic bag
was placed over her head, a tow rope tied around her neck and then her broken
body was dragged behind a vehicle. After all that horrific abuse “Daisy Duke”
was still alive. The veterinarian who arrived on the scene euthanised “Daisy
Duke” immediately.
        To find the two people who allegedly did this, police had only to follow the
blood trail back to the residence.
        I, Tamara Chaney, have decided to start this petition in hopes of having
the Government change the animal cruelty laws. As the laws are now, our pets
are considered property and, as such, we are free basically to do as we please
with them.
        Research shows that many people who abuse animals when they are
younger grow up to be child abusers, spouse abusers, as well as serial killers.

If this Bill were to pass, it would be the first significant changes to
prevent animal cruelty in Canada since 1892.

        Regardless of countless petitions in regards to animal cruelty, numerous
cases of horrific animal abuse, public concern and outrage, proven links between
animal abusers and serial killers, many federal politicians continue to block Bill
C-50. In truth, some politicians have falsely claimed Bill C-50 would stop
farmers from branding their livestock, as well as prevent fishermen from using
live bait, just to name a couple. Both claims are completely false. The legislation
is in fact carefully worded to permit accepted animal industry practices to
continue, acceptable hunting/ fishing procedures to continue, and existing
Aboriginal Rights not be changed. The outcome of this political gamesmanship
is that innocent animals continue to suffer horrific cruelty and their
abusers/killers continue to go unpunished.

       You can help by signing this petition as well as contacting your
MP and encouraging him/her to support the reintroduction of
effective animal welfare legislation like Bill C-50.
Positive letters of support to our MPs will go much farther than letters of anger.

        We, the undersigned residents of Canada, urge The House of Commons in Parliament to update the current laws in regards to
                                                Animal Welfare. Formerly known as Bill C-50.

      We, the undersigned residents of Canada consent to the information provided below to be used for the purpose of this Petition only.
           If an Animal Welfare Bill similar to Bill C-50 is passed into Legislation, perhaps we may name it the “Daisy Duke” Bill.
