At the end of this brief post there is a link to a video. It is extremely thought provoking and I want you to watch it.
But first reflect on these wrong propositions.
A wrong proposition: Humans own animals as property.
Companion animals are much more than that. They are a part of your family, they are a part of your life. Their value is not measured by cash. Society needs to rethink its stance as a whole.
A wrong proposition: You make a mistake, your animal pays for it. (pounded, killed).
You make a mistake, it is you who should pay. It is never the animal, it is the human, who makes things go wrong. The payment should be in proportion to the crime.
Letting your dog run without a muzzle CANNOT constitute a crime.
Wrong proposition: Breed Specific Legislation
A dog cannot be executed based on his looks. Breed Specific Legislation is a monstrosity and needs to be fought by all.
Your dog is right now at the merci of whomever decides to report him based purely on the way he looks. This leads to absurdities like the case of Rambo and Brittany.
A wrong proposition: If there is a law, even if unjust, we must obey.
If there is an unjust law, we must fight to change it. We must fight not only for ourselves but for those who follow, for those who might suffer, for those who believe in us.
And now pls watch this video because this is the very basic proposition we are trying to change.
It is time for Brindi to go home and to be reunited with her owner, Francesca Rogier.
If you are in Canada please CALL Mayor Peter J. Kelly, Mayor of Halifax on ph: 902-490-4010 and tell him that Brindi must be spared AND returned to her owner.
If you are abroad please email firstname.lastname@example.org and express the same… We have 7 days.…
