Hi, Abuldotcom,

Only RM200 per incident. As Melmel noted below, she was convicted on 2 counts of abuse, so her total fine was RM400.

That's a bad joke, right?

Unfortunately, with the Malaysian law as it is currently written, RM200 is the maximum fine that a judge can impose. Animal lovers are working hard to toughen up this law -- longer jail sentences, bigger fines.

If you care about this issue, please sign this petition.

Let the law-makers know you want tougher laws and penalties for animal abuse! If you've already signed, thank you.
