It is time for tougher laws in the United States for those who torture, maim, and kill animals. This isn't just for animals it's also for our parents,our children, and their childrens safety.

This is something that really and truly needs to be done. I am all for making animal abuse in any form a felony with stiff fines, incarceration, intensive therapy, and a registry where the abuser/killer MUST be registered so that people will know what they have done and that they are living amongst them. It is way past time for something to be done to protect our precious, innocent, defenseless animals from human predators. Please make this a priority, as it should be.

Signed of course , However someone being charged with animal cruelty / abuse is not the same as being convicted , In the case of the woman in NJ brutally stabbed by a young man Tyrick Haynes , He had 2 weeks prior to attacking that woman been charged w/ animal cruelty for burning a cat to death , He had not been to court yet for that or sentenced .
I feel in the case of someone being charged w/ animal cruelty there should be an immediate psychological
evaluation to determine if they pose a risk to public safety
