Malaysia - Paradise for Animals? Revised Animals Act 1953



Story 1 - If the news didn't spread the story of 300 abandoned dogs being left in Pulau Ketam(Pulau Tengah) to die, I think that people would still think that Malaysia is a paradise for animal? Paradise might be for the noble breed, how about the normal, average looking mongrels? It would be like hell for them. Sometimes, I really doubted the ability of the government in handling this kind of problem. So, they dumped them there thinking that the dogs could eat what - sand? water? mud? leaves? Then, the horror happened when 300 abandoned dogs eat each other on Malaysia Island(http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/world/2009-05/07/content_7753693.htm) In the 1st place, they must plan well in solving this problem. Got problem baru solved it - is not the way. (Do you still remember this case?) No, look at here http://www.mycen.com.my/rescue/index.html The rescue team trying to save! Foreigners would be horrified to read this news(><)

Story 2 - KTM's abuse story in 2010 was also another shocking reveal! At Kepong KTM, a dog was tied up and a wooden stick was shoved under its throat! Omg, imagine that someone shoved a wooden spoon into your throat! Do you like it?! I complaint about KTM all the time, but, this time, it was really horrible! It was ridiculous that a stray dog being abused like that in the public and the workers seemed to got away from any kind of legal actions! Paradise for animals in Malaysia, think again!~~~(http://www.mathaba.net/0_index.shtml?x=623156)

Other Stories  - There were so many stories to tell. If telling them one by one could help, of course, I would! But, actions always speak louder than words! Animals Act 1953 in Malaysia is obsolete! Yes, this act is older than me!An antique would not be able to govern the country!~~~Imagine that you are the one being mistreated or abused! Animals are living beings! They feel the pain, hurt...too.

Therefore, my friend, Janice, sent me a petition to amend the Animals Act 1953 as follow:
We urge for the increase of the liable fine of RM 200 to a minimum of RM 10,000. We also propose the liable jail term to be increase from 6 months to a maximum of 2 years with the compulsory community service to be carried out in animal shelters for a minimum of 4 hours per day during jail term. We also press upon the need to include the ban of consuming dogs and cats to the REVISED ANIMALS ACT 1953 as dogs and cats are companion animals.

Yes, with more strict rules, this would definitely help to reduce abuse case!  So, sign the petition here:
