It’s a known fact based on studies and research that a person practices abuse/torture on helpless animals to move on to harming innocent people. There is also more behind all this animal abuse and dog fighting, such as gangs, illegal drugs, illegal ownership of firearms, etc. That can be stopped if we enforce animal abuse laws by forming federally funded undercover animal police investigators and create harsher punishment for violators.

To:
Illinois Governor
President of the United States
Illinois State Senate
Illinois State House
U.S. Senate
U.S. House of Representatives
Enforce animal abuse laws by forming federally funded undercover animal police investigators and create harsher punishment for violators.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Animal abusers rarely get harsh enough punishment. Send the message: you abuse animals, you will be severely punished.
