I Think Laws Should Be Harder On People That Hurt Animals

    Absolutely They Should

    People who hurt animals should face the same consequences as those who hurt children. Animals against man are almost as defenseless as children, and there is no reason to hurt one except for self-defense or survival in a dire situation. Anything else is just cruelty.

    it totally blows my mind how people can do such horrible, heinous things to hurt--even kill--animals and walk away from it with barely a slap on the wrist. purposely bringing harm to any living thing should have majorly serious consequences. there was a case i just heard about...

    They need to be MUCH harder.

    Punishment needs to be harder for anyone who hurts a poor innocent, defenseless animal, who couldn't possibly have done anything to remotely deserve to be abused. It's sick and twisted.

    Animal Cruelty

    My ex boyfriend's dog had been bitten by another dog, and began to limp a lot. I tried to make him take her to the vet, but his family refused, it's been a month since we broke up, and another month since she was bitten. No one will do anything about it, but I believe letting a...

    Harsher Punishments....

    I firmly believe that our laws regarding animal cruelty are far too lax...animal life is precious too... we as humans should be their protectors and their voice...and ensure that those who do them harm should be met with the most rigid and severe punishments.....

    Be Gone Not Come Back

    Some people hurt animals and get off with probation, some kill animals and get a slap on the wrist. Animals are just like us. They may not look like it but they have brains and can walk, when they bark they say things to other dogs. I think laws should be harder on people that...

    Soapbox Rant

    Animals are primarily defenceless and the laws for mistreatment of animals are out of date and archaic, anyone found guilty of abusing an animal should be banned for life from owning one.

    It's Sickening

    I had just recently written a story in another animal cruelty group that talked about some horses an ex of mine had. She had neglected them to the point of me having to call the law on her. Now believe me, i am not that citizen that goes around calling the police on everything...

    The kinds of people who are actually okay with

    hurting animals aren't going to be happy-friendly-kind to people either. That kind of destructiveness is never limited to just animals, even if the person hides it well most of the time. So - I'm not going to complain if those kinds of people get locked away from the rest of us...

    It's A Rational Choice

     Animal abusers usually escalate their behaviors in myriad antisocial ways.  Short of draconian measures, I believe the law should circumvent that escalation in any manner possible.

    They are living creatures like us.

    Why give less or no rights to them.They also wanna be happy like you and me,and if you do not like them...at least do not harm them.If you do not know how to take good care of your pet,inform yourself.And if you cannot handle it alone,ask for help. A pet is a friend,family...

    Unspoken Hurt

    I wish laws were harder on people that hurt animals.  They are not able to tell a judge, a jury or anybody how they are being treated.  I cannot stand animal abuse and will speak out when I see it.  I have confronted people who have treated their animals poorly.  If I see you...
