PETALING JAYA: ...
Many pet owners and animal lovers, who had gathered at the court, were disappointed with the sentence, with several in tears and yelling at the two accused as they left court.
Yes, it is a disappointingly light sentence, but as the article pointed out, the judge levied the maximum penalty currently allowed by the law.

I hope all the animal lovers who find this sentence appalling will voice their opinions as law-makers and DVS work to draft a new bill with stiffer penalties. NOW is the time to speak up and take action -- respond to the poll at the top of the Petfinder web page (hosted by DVS) and contact your elected representatives to demand new legislation.
