Save the Sled Dogs: Reform BC's Anti-Cruelty to Animals Law

TV's Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhelder's IS Foundation started an important petition on http://www.change.org/ - here's the link:
Being an avid animal-rights advocate, I have signed it (my accompanying comment below) & encourage everyone to do so:  updating legislation to reflect British Columbians' needs/opinions/priorities/values is an understood requirement of our provincial government.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         role of government requirement of of yone ought to) - here's the comment i added, below:

HOW could such a horrible fate be decided for these innocent creatures? in an 'industry' that would, presumably, put animals first + ENFORCE THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF ANIMAL TREATMENT?? Makes you wonder what goes on in other industries (eg. farming) where animals are considered 'livestock' purely for human consumption (watch the film 'Earthlings' & you too will consider going vegan to save our creature cousins from such cruel fates)...

Those responsible need to be made examples of in court, to show how grossly unacceptable their actions are & to get proper animal-protection laws in place.

I hope this sickening story will stick in people's minds as a sobering-up of how many animals are abused for selfish human purposes, & just how WRONG it is. If people made this tragedy a turning-point for change, at least some goodness could come of all this pain.

Time to put our mouths to good use - tell the govt. we won't allow animals to suffer similar horrible endings as these beautiful sled-dogs did!

Poor doggies (& all non-human creatures forced into lives of serving my uncaring species), i weep for your pure hearts & wish i could undo the terrible endings you are undeservedly made to suffer...
