why do some people even get animals, they leave them out in all types of weather w/ out proper shelter r food. they abuse them n neglect them. there needs to be stricter laws on these animal abusers. often times they get off w/ a simple warning r a fine. its so not right. if u harm n animal u should go to jail, its no different then harming a person. that animal is just as defenseless as a child. people who harm animals r sick, weak , disgusting , worthless people who desreve to pay heavily 4 these acts. it breaks my heart to see r hear about the cruel things people do to animals.
