ANIMAL CRUELTY IN CHINA
For many years now the cruelty inflicted upon animals in China has flooded our newspapers, websites and television screens.
The terrible and extreme treatment of animals has no justification whatsoever. The barbaric treatment and slaughter of cats and dogs for food consumption is frankly sickening and shameful.
I want you to know I am deeply saddened and utterly appalled to learn that there are still no laws in place that offer protection against the acts of extreme cruelty to animals in China.
Your lack of action to enact animal protection laws in China is causing cruelty to millions of animals and is also causing enormous distress to both the citizens of China as well as citizens from all around the world who witness such cruelty via the international media and internet.
The shocking abuse that animals in China endure on a daily basis is totally unacceptable and I therefore urge you to address this matter with your government.
The introduction of animal welfare laws in China is a mandatory step to protect animals from cruelty.
I ask you to please urgently request your government to put into place laws to stop the unnecessary suffering endured by animals which has no place in any civilized society.
