       In Canada there is only five laws in our criminal code that have to do with animal abuse. Only five laws that protect the animals that inhabit Canada. Our laws state that an animal is someone’s property. A person can do what they want with their property in Canada. Then there's the term "willful neglect" in are code. Which means a person can only be charged for abusing an animal if it was willfuly done, and if the court can prove that they did it. Canada's laws are based on the United kingdoms laws. Yet the U.K has 13 pages of laws on animal abuse. Thirteen laws that help keep there animals safe, that but the abusers in jail. We need to tell the Canadian Government to start making laws that will actually put the abusers behind bars.
