LETTER: Sentences aren’t harsh enough

I am one of many who is angry and frustrated by the leniency of the legal system regarding animal cruelty and deaths.

I have got to the stage where I could easily get myself arrested if I knew where these cowards lived.

How much longer and how many more animals have to suffer before the law is changed?


They only get sentenced to a few weeks. They are laughing at the ‘penalties’. I hope our MP’s will take it up in parliament and make it years.

Somebody somewhere will get revenge eventually on behalf of the animals, and I’m sure it will be a different story then.
