Discussing :: Our slack punishment for people who abuse animals

#21

our whole legal system needs an overhaul and not just for animal abuse cases either.. just look at what punishments you get in america for them life is usually life even australia has harsher sentences for driving convictions etc

People that hurt animals are cowards! They abuse animals that cant defend themselves to make themselves feel better.

#23

Laws in general are soft in NZ.

The sentences imposed on animal abusers is pathetic, The cruelty and mistreatment that some animals are subjected too is horrendous. more and more people are becoming heartless and apathetic to animals and the results of sentencing is no deterrent at all...

Just like the recent case of a woman and her partner who docked puppies tails with a hot knife just got a slap on the wrist because she is training to become a vet assistant and pleaded ignorance to how much pain the pups were put through.

I respect the SPCA for standing up and fighting to get people charged and put through the court system, It is at great expense as well . The SPCA is not funded by the government and relies on donations and fundraising efforts to get some kind of justice for animals and the courts just hand out small fines and say you cant own a dog, cat, cattle or horses for two years..

That is ridiculous and must be so frustrating for the prosecuting teams..

As members of the public, We should be pushing for tougher results on animal abusers.... In fact the entire judicial sentencing should be overhauled and everything should be harsher. We need effective deterrents in every aspect so that the offenders are put where they belong or have substantial fines and reparations imposed so that it is an effective deterrent from day one.

I hate people that cut off dogs tails. Also people that throw fireworks at cats. Penalties are too light

Personally I think that people who abuse animals are the real psychopaths that should be locked up in prisons.How could anyone ever hurt an adorable puppy or gorgeous kitten is beyond me, but is does happen a lot. More often it's in homes that drugs and alcohol are abused and the people spend all their money on this so they don't have enough to care for their pets. I think that New Zealand are way to leniant on people that abuse animals and I'm sorry but a hefty fine just isn't gunna cut it!
