In recent years, there has been a sharp increase in animal abuse and killing, and the methods are extremely bad, and there is actually a black industry chain. NPC deputy Zhao Wanping suggested that the “Public Security Administration Punishment Law” should be amended to explicitly include animal cruelty into the scope of the law. Schools should incorporate the care of animals and nature into the curriculum.
In fact, there have long been anti-animal cruelty legislation in various places. The “Beijing Animal Epidemic Prevention Regulations” issued in 2014 clearly stipulate that animal keepers must not abandon or abuse their animals. The “Regulations on the Administration of Laboratory Animals in Hubei Province” also stipulate that animals should not be teased or cruelty, and the pain of the animals being handled should be minimized. The “Chongqing Municipal Measures for the Administration of Laboratory Animals” also has provisions prohibiting cruelty to animals. But what is meant by “minimizing” pain? Some people think that dying is quick and painless with throat bleeding; some people think that only euthanasia is not painful. Such legislation will obviously cause problems that are difficult to implement because of the virtualized punishment measures. To legislate to prohibit certain behaviors, one must first think of what legal interests such behavior infringes upon. Animals do not enjoy personality rights; even pets are legally only human property. For ordinary animals, if they are not endangered, they are not worth protecting them by law. Legislation on cruelty to protect animals has long existed, but it is difficult to enforce. There are also many acts of cruelty to animals in private, how can they be punished? If the concept is not clear, what is the difference between the prohibition of cruelty to animals and the prohibition of killing animals? When scalding cats and dogs with boiling water, there are octagonal bay leaves in your pocket. Isn’t it considered abuse? This is obviously not in line with the original intention of the six words “prohibition of cruelty to animals”. Legal interest is the basis of conviction, and ethics is the basis of conviction. In recent years, the black industry chain of videos of animal abuse and killing has frequently entered our field of vision. Uploading videos that contain content such as abuse, bloody, violence, etc. also violate public order and good customs. Such videos will undoubtedly cause bad influences such as distortion of values on children, and will also bring certain psychological harm to viewers. If there is a law to follow and law enforcement is well-founded, it is necessary to increase the feasibility of law enforcement. After animal cruelty is included in the Public Security Management and Punishment Law, the term “abuse” should be accurately defined. It is also necessary to clarify the specific behaviors that will be punished by the Public Security Administration Penalty Law, and what does “the circumstances are serious and the impact is bad”? For example, the video reaches a certain amount of transmission. If you call for legislation year after year but are vague year after year, don’t bother. Meatless Stars: How do you abuse animals?
