Making a police report
I've spoken to two people over the last few days, who have told me that they tried to make police reports about cats that were abused and were brushed off. One was told that he needed to have a photograph of the person abusing the cat even though he witnessed it. The other person was just told there was no need to file a report.
I have written about this before, but remember, abuse of an animal IS a crime. You CAN file a report, just as with any crime. None of the welfare groups - CWS, SPCA or any of us can file the report for you. We would certainly appreciate being informed, but only the police can start the ball rolling if you want to report it as a crime.
Abuse or abandonment is punishable by a fine of up to $10000 and/or a year's jail, which goes to show how serious a crime it is.
