After a 42 year old man tied a dog to a tree and shot him two times, about 100 pet lovers rallied in Ohio, demanding harsher punishments for animal cruelty. Some signs said, "I am Forrest (the dog's new name). Where is justice for me?"

N&S...please no more discrimination for some animals to be subjected to violence while others are perceived as being somehow more valuable...Never eat any being as they suffer such bloody, violence and horrific mistreatments. Those who harm kill, eat, participate in this activity becoe neutralized or desensitized to the conditions that our closest relatives i this universe experience.

Animal abusers should be charged with serious felonies! Also, an abusers registry needs to be started immediately. How so many that commit horrific crimes against animals, including abuse, neglect, exploitation, slaughter, etc., get away with sentences that are so insignificant it makes me sick! A 30 day jail term that's suspended and they are, instead, made to do community service is nothing more than a slap on the wrist. If it was up to me, they would be sentenced to suffer in the same manner that they're convicted of committing to their victims.
