Make animal cruelty a more punishable crime

      Schenectady, NY

New York has weak animal protection laws. A general animal cruelty case is up to a year in jail and a thousand dollars. Animal cruelty is out of control in New York and the people convicted just get a slap on the wrist and they do it again. Animals need us to protect them. Animal protection should mean protection for all animals. Animal fighting rings are dangerous to society. They make animals vicious. If you were a animal would you want to be protected to have a safe and happy life?

      I feel that even animals should be treated like humans. I have 2 dogs and wouldn't see life without them.

      Strong Gun laws, but weak animal protection laws?

      NO ANIMAL DESERVES TO BE ABUSED OR MISTREATED AND THERE NEEDS TO BE STRICTER PENALTIES TO DETER PEOPLE FROM EVEN THINKING ABOUT DOING SOMETHING TO HARM AN ANIMAL.
