Having a law and enforcing the law are two different things. Demand your state enforce provisions to protect animals. Thanks Cher

Kit B stated that: "Having a law and enforcing the law are two different things. Demand your state enforce provisions to protect animals."

A very good observation and the state that has the strictest laws and sentences should have that legislation used in all 50 states.

The new law represents the emergence of a nationwide consensus that egregious animal abuse should be treated as a serious crime. Although there is much more work left to be done, this event marks a significant milestone in an undeniable trend favoring humane treatment of animals.
Thanks Cher. - It is about freaking that each state has the same law!!
