As you will know, I have been campaigning for years and years about cruelty to animals and the lack of any consequences for the most horrific crimes against them (torture and murder).

This petition at https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/120545/ needs to get at least 10,000 signatures to get a response from the government, and 100,000 for it to be considered for debate in parliament to get the law changed for a minimum 5 year sentence for animal murder.

This is very close to my heart as you know, and to many, many millions who feel the same way.

Derbyshire has had more than it’s fair share of it’s animal cruelty and murder, which is just on the increase, to the extent that people are saying they are scared of picking up a newspaper for fear of what they will see of the horrific news and pictures.

I hope and pray that you will help this cause by giving people the opportunity to sign this petition and put their support behind the poor, suffering animals.

If you will be so kind as to assist us on this issue , we would be eternally grateful and you will be admired by the many people who care about animals and need to do something about it other than just talk about it.
