Justice for Buddy - The Petition Site

My owner and his friend tried to "teach me a lesson" for running away, by "allegedly" attaching me to a motorcycle and dragging me 300 feet until I collapsed into a pool of blood. I was dragged through a camp ground in front of MANY young children. Please sign this petition with hopes of my abusers getting the maximum possible sentence if found guilty. You can read some details here, which includes information on who "allegedly" did this to me:

and the people fighting for me!!

Dear Sir or Madam:

We as concerned citizens of one of the world's most advanced countries, have come together to voice our disgust in regards to the abuse of animals, namely Buddy.  Animals have rights just like humans. They don't deserve to be tortured and abused.

Each year thousands of animals are injured or die of abuse and neglect. Often this violence against animals goes unpunished. It should not be ignored despite the fact that statistics show that there is a strong correlation between violence against animals and violence against humans. Studies show that animal cruelty can be one of the earliest and most dramatic indicators that an individual is developing a pattern of inflicting suffering on others. In addition, statistics show that many violent criminal offenders have histories of serious, repeated animal cruelty as children or teens. These violent people must be severely punished for their crimes, before their violence spreads to hurt more animals and people.

We, the undersigned residents of Canada and concerned global citizens, are urging the House of Commons to amend Canada's federal animal cruelty legislation.

We strongly feel our current federal animal cruelty laws are grossly inadequate and do not offer effective protection for animals in this country and that the passage of Bill S203 did nothing to address the inadequacies of this outdated legislation that continues the deplorable statistic of animal cruelty cases leading to unsuccessful conviction.

Canada continues to rank at the bottom along with third world countries on animal protection legislation and this is unacceptable.

One of the world's greatest humanitarians eluded to the rights of animals in his poignant statement;
"The greatness of a nation and it's moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" ~Mahatma Gandhi
As a nation, how do we measure up?

On July 28, 2010 I was tied behind a motorcycle and dragged until I was unconscious and collapsed in a pool of blood.I endured 5 hours of surgery to try to repair my horrific wounds caused by this incident. 
Can you please help me and other helpless creatures to ensure we never have to go through something like this again.
If found guilty of abusing me please prosecute the two men charged,Steve Latoure and Patrick Gendron to the fullest extent of the law.  You can be the person to make a difference,  who sets an example and show that animal cruelty will not be toleratedAnd PLEASE do not allow them to ever own an animal again or be within 100 feet of one.

We ask your Honourable Judge to hand the maximum possible sentence to Patrick Gendron and Steve Latoure, should they be found guilty of animal abuse.
Thank you
