Punish Man Who Reportedly Punched a Possum in the Face

Target: Andrea Midgen, Chief Executive Officer of the Royal New Zealand SPCA

Goal: Demand that the man who allegedly punched a possum in the face be charged with animal cruelty and receive the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

A possum was reportedly violently punched in the face in a shocking act of cruelty. A video posted on Facebook reportedly showed one person laughing as another man knocked the poor animal off of a fence post. Demand justice for this innocent possum.

“If it was a dog or cat being punched violently in the face, there would be no discussion about this, other than that the perpetrator needs to be prosecuted for animal abuse,” stated a spokesperson for Save Animals From Exploitation (SAFE).  The short clip reportedly showed a young man exiting a car and stopping in front of a possum, which had perched atop a fencepost. He then allegedly punched the possum directly in the face. The person filming reportedly laughed as the poor animal fell off of the fence and onto the ground.

Many consider possums as merely pests, but SAFE feels otherwise. They have reported this disturbing video to the Royal New Zealand SPCA in hopes that the inspector will investigate and prosecute the people involved. Sign below and demand that those responsible be prosecuted and sentenced to the maximum penalty possible by law, if convicted.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Executive Officer Midgen,

A possum was reportedly brutally assaulted in a disturbing case of animal cruelty. A video allegedly showed a young man punching the poor animal in the face, causing his friend to laugh. We demand justice for this innocent possum.

Members of the animal welfare group Save Animals From Exploitation have called upon you to condemn the people who reportedly assaulted a defenseless possum. A popular video, posted on Facebook, allegedly showed a young man exiting a car and stopping in front of the alerted possum. The young man then reportedly punched the possum in the face, causing the poor animal to fall off of a fence. The person filming then reportedly laughed at the possum’s senseless suffering.

Possums may be considered pests by some, but no one should be allowed to assault them for a laugh. We demand that you prosecute the people in this video and seek the maximum penalty possible in this case.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
