Stricter laws governing sentencing for cruelty to animals

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Gloria McClymont
1/153 Yundah Street

Total Signatures - 3888

Sponsoring Member: Vicky Darling MP

Posting Date: 8/03/2011

Tabled Date: 8/03/2011

Responded By: Hon Tim Mulherin MP on 8/04/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the cruelty to many domestic and native animals, eg. the unnecessary flogging of horses; koala's being shot by gun pellets; and dogs having their eyes glued together.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to have much stricter laws governing the sentencing of culprits, found guilty of cruelty to animals.  Stronger sentencing is required.
