Pet Cruelty Bill Signed In Hawaii

Hawaii Governor

The governor of Hawaii (pictured in red suit) has signed a bill to make intentional cruelty against animals a felony. This means that anyone who tortures, mutilates or poisons a pet could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Animal activists are also pushing for an animal cruelty law that would pertain to all animals including ranch and farm animals.

    This is a much needed bill. Our Hawaii governor’s name is Linda Lingle.

    We desperately need this bill in Virginia and everywhere else where swearing in public and animal abuse are given the same penalty. Shame on you Virginia!!

    We need to have a universal bill like this that is to cover ALL animals, pet or no pet! Do our laws cover just specific types of people or ALL the people. Why can’t our animal activists accomplish this!?!

    Call, write or email your Legislator’s. Let them know this needs to be law throughout the entire United States.
