Felony indictment for dog fighting in Georgia
- by: Melanie Kimball
- target: legislators and citizens, Dog lovers, and advocates
I feel it imperative to send a clear and decisive message to our legislaters NOW! Now is the time to act. Now is the time for change. Now is the time to save innocent animals and now is the time to stand up. We, the people, want and demand that laws be enacted in the United States of America to make the heinous crime of dog fiighting a felony with a minimum sentence of 15 years without parole. The current felony law states on the first offense the sentence may be 1-5 years in the state of Georgia. The laws for the most part are weak and need to be matched to the degree of this outrageous crime against everything we stand for in this country. The current sentence even at the felony level is nothing compared to the animals mutilated and murdered.Please have mercy on these innocent animals. How can we allow this type of treatment to go on against the most innocent and pure of creatures...just a dog. I am outraged and if you are not then I do not understand. People, be strong and fight for these precious animals. Change needs to flow thoughout this country and we are late as dogs are killed every day by this "sport" of animal murder, mayhem, and maiming. I am telling you the truth, I can't stand this and I am not going to stop and hope you will write your representatives and be firm and personal. Please, for the love of humanity and animals, STAND UP, and take the time. You will be better for it. We have got to come on like a hurricane and not let up for one moment until change happens. We CAN and WILL do this together.

We, the undersigned, wish to change the minimum sentence for dog fighting to 15-20 years without parole and while serving must take classes about the care of animals and be exposed to the consequences of their actions, they must volunteer in shelters and every effort made to rehabilitate and enlighten so they leave with a changed attitude.
