The New York City Council should be urged to pass this bill in spite of its cost because it could save many animals' lives, and indirectly save human lives.

You want a list that you will be able to see all of the animal abusers on. It won't happen. I'll show you why.

Letís use the Sex offender Registry for example. Only 40% of abusers get reported, only half of those get prosecuted; only a portion of them are convicted. So of 100 offenders eight may get registered. You as a civilian see only the level three offenders. So while the government spends tens of millions of dollars to track those eight of every 100 sex offenders you can usually only see a fraction of those. In the meantime, an average of 92 out of every 100 offenders is walking around free and Joe and Jane Doe Public think they are safe from the sexual predators. The registered level ones could live next door and you wonít know about them; only Law Enforcement knows. The level twos can live in your neighborhood and only Law Enforcement and the local schools will know. The registry ONLY tracks those that are CONVICTED.

With an animal abuser registry, those you as civilians would see would be only the worst of the worst. It won't solve any problem and will divert much needed money away from animal shelters and other programs that need it. I know that on the surface it sounded like a good idea and pulls at the heart, but in the long run, it is only a placebo for the public that is unlikely to help many, if any, animals.

Give some thought to what I am sharing here. I know it won't be popular and this is the only extant comparison available. It cannot serve the purpose you seek and in the long run could cost so much more. I suggest we focus on what we know works and not on what some of us know does not..

If you question the statistics which I abbreviated here, check the RAINN.Org site and confirm with your local DA's.

This is required globally.

But wouldn't stricter laws and better enforcement go a long way?
