Call to Increase Sentencing in the UK for Animal Abuse Crimes


Urgent Review to the UK Law and Level of Sentencing for Animal Abuse Crimes.

Please consider adding your signature (if you have not already done so) to call on the UK government to enhance animal abuse sentencing. Thank you…. – Petition Link.

The recent case of ‘Blaze’, Aberdeenshire, Scotland in August 2015 and her mutilation and sexual abuse has highlighted how feeble the UK Law is – The maximum sentence that the UK Law can apparently mete out for animal abuse crime is a mere 12 months.

The UK Law needs to reflect the pain and suffering to both animals and owners from these horrific acts, plus an increase in UK policing of animal abuse crime.

The Horse and Hound Article 27 August 2015 gives more of the background to Balze’s tragic story. 

The perpetrators (and their ilk) of Blaze’s horrific mutilation, if ever found and convicted, need to receive a severe punishment as a further deterrent to other animal abusers and potential animal abusers. 

The ‘verbal’ recognition by the UK Government that animals are ‘sentient beings’, able to perceive feelings, is not enough. Review is required for the enforcing of heavier sentences for convicted animal abusers. The above petition (Petition Link) to the UK government requires your support this weekend please! Thank you.

  1. There needs to be stiffer animal abuse laws so the perpetrators that do these disgusting and vial things to any kind of animals will not be tolerated. ALL ANIMALS NEED A VOICE!!!!!!!

  2. I agree – animal abuse crimes should receive much harsher punishments and the perpetrators should be banned from keeping or looking after animals for life


  3. nations and society is gaged on how we treat our animals…whether we have compassion to those that rely on us for life in most respects. It isn’t any different then how you respond to a child as they are also the most likely to be abused….those that can’t speak for themselves. Humans that are this sick should be put away or eliminated…they are like mad dogs and should be put out of their misery so that nothing else will suffer from their madness!!!!
