Melbourne Australia is under lockdown as it becomes the most locked down city in the world and is currently gripped by a COVID-19 virus wave. During protests against vaccination and lockdown, animals have been kicked and been subjected to violence.
Sign Now and urge the Victorian Premier to prosecute any and all instances of animal abuse at these protests!
The mood in Melbourne, Australia at the moment is frustration and anger towards the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns and complusory vaccinations for the people of Victoria. The unsuspecting and innocent victims at the violent protests being held around the city and state are actually the animals being brought along to the rallys and marches. A recent video posted to Twitter shows two men in an argument, one holding his leashed dog, when suddenly the other man kicks the dog as the animal is surprised and jumps back in shock. Animals are sentient beings and bringing them into violence can cause them to become stressed, traumatized, defensive, or even to flee and become lost. The mood in this Victorian city is one of unrest and unease, as people are continuing to fight and flaunt the lockdown rules.
This particular case of animal violence appeared to show intentional cruelty towards the dog and the offence in Australia can hold a penalty of up to $45,000 or jail time.
Act now and urge Premier Daniel Andrews to find the man who inflicted the violence and charge him with animal abuse under the current Australian laws!
