Target: Russian President Vladimir Putin
Goal: To control the groups of people that hunt and torture dogs in Russia
Groups of people all over Russia frequently have hunting sessions where they capture stray dogs from off the street and torture them. These dogs are often killed, and domestic dogs are also killed by poisoned meat the hunters give to them in parks. These dog hunters need to be stopped.
Russia is behind in the times when it comes to animal cruelty laws, and the pet population is suffering as a result. These sick people will capture any dog that they find, regardless of if it is someone’s pet or not. The dogs are killed in vicious, inhumane ways and discarded like trash. It has become a sport in Russia to torture these dogs. Something needs to be done to change this.
Animal cruelty laws in America can hopefully influence Russia to create laws of their own. It is sickening to have crazy people running around grabbing random dogs just to torture for their own pleasure. If Russia can control these dog hunters, than other local crimes may decrease since animal torture is a known gateway to other crimes, Sign the petition below to ask the Russian president to control these dog hunters and spare these animals.
Dear President Vladimir Putin,
There is a sickening trend going on in your country. Groups of people patrol the streets looking for stray dogs to capture, torture and ultimately kill. They are also abducting domestic dogs that are people’s pets and poisoning them in parks. These actions are the work of criminals, and these people need to be punished.
By allowing this to continue in your country, you are allowing criminals to roam the streets. Animal abuse is known to be a sign of future criminal acts, and these people need to be stopped now. If dog hunting continues, then you will have an increase of other severe crimes that can harm your country even more. Animal abusers that hunt for innocent pets are the sickest kinds of people and they need to be stopped.
These dog hunting practices will only lead to other acts of animal cruelty if not controlled. There is plenty you can do to have more control of your streets and how law enforcement deals with these people. They are murdering innocent animals in your backyards, and this will only lead to further problems. Please end the dog hunting and create animal cruelty laws to protect your country’s pets.
