Forbes was charged with animal cruelty, paid a fine of $1,210 (£750) and was suspended from the club for nine months.
Unfortunately, the club has decided to reinstate Forbes' membership, which animal lovers and activists disagree with. Legendary Queen guitarist and animal rights activist Brian May has also added his voice to protest Forbes' membership, along with the group Fox Watch.
Please sign the petition asking the Peterculter Golf Club to hold animal abusers accountable and take a stand against violence by banning Forbes for life.
Donald Forbes was convicted of cruelty to animals in 2011 for brutally beating a tame fox on your property with a golf club for doing nothing more than stealing a biscuit. Even though he was fined and placed on probation, Forbes' actions speak volumes about his character, or lack thereof, and he should be banned for life.
Torture and abuse of innocent creatures is simply unacceptable and I sincerely believe that nothing less than an outright termination of his membership is appropriate.
