My mom heard about a very bad man. He didn't like his neighbors, so he trapped their cat in his yard and took it to the pound and had it euthanized. He is being charged with "animal mischief" (that is a LOT MORE than MISCHIEF! It's murder!) in Suffolk County, New York.
My mom was so upset about this that she made an online petition. If you read the information on the petition and think that this man should do jail time, please sign the petition. Mom says please feel free to send it to other people who might like to sign it. The more signatures, the better! A week before the bad man's trial, mom will send the results of the petition to the circuit court judge who will be hearing the case.
You can view and sign the petition here. You can also choose to remain anonymous and not have your name publicly displayed if you want.
Mom said she is sick of people who commit acts of cruelty or abuse against animals getting light punishments like fines, probation or community service. We all need to fight for tougher penalties for people who abuse animals!
