If you witness animal cruelty,

get evidence & report to the police & BAWA 


 

What to do if you witness animal cruelty: 

  • Document as much as possible. This is very important. Take photos and videos of the act of cruelty, people, animals, license plates, and location.
  • Save the location (on Google Maps on your smart phone and photograph identifying location markers – such as roadsigns, house features, etc).
  • Find as many witnesses as possible (at least 3 is best) Record their name, phone number, address, and ask for a statement of what they’ve seen.
  • Print Indonesian laws and save them on your phone to present to the police, who may have never had a case dealing with these laws.
  • Go to local police (with copies of relevant laws and the evidence of cruelty) and say you want to file a complaint and refer to relevant laws that you’ve printed.
  • If the police say they are unable to do anything, please send BAWA an email to that effect (provide location of event, police station you went to and your evidence).
  • If the police proceed to register your complaint for further investigation, please ask for a copy of the police report with a case number (that you can track online) and inform BAWA.
  • Please report all cases related to the dog meat trade, poisoning, dog fighting, dog theft and other animal cruelty to BAWA, the police, and local Animal Husbandry officers (Dinas Peternakan).
  • Stay calm and safe; do not put yourself in harms way.
