Minimum and mandatory sentences for animal cruelty
This petition had 4,244 supporters
Decent and caring citizens of the United States (and beyond) are exponentially tired of seeing animals killed or abused, and then the abuser receiving little to no jail time. Animal abusers are five times more likely to hurt humans, and they are being left in society to do more damage. Almost always you find them also abusing a child or some other innocent person. Keeping them off the streets should be a priority.
The sentences given to animal abusers are weak and ineffective as deterrents, and certainly not carrying out fair and proper justice. We demand mandatory jail and longer sentences.
When an animal crime is committed, the entire community, state, and nation is in uproar- then, later find the person served very little time. Police and courts can only punish to the fullest extent of the law if their are laws that back them and back citizen outrage. We are fully tired of this weak and repetitive process.
From dragging sharks behind a boat in Florida, leaving dogs outside to freeze in the cold etc. to each case state to state- we want action.
We also want proactive warnings given to all potential abusers. Let it be known that the United States does not tolerate animal abuse!
As an example, a person who drops a puppy off a building is NOT mentally stable and should not be allowed to roam free. Therefore, sentences should be 10 to 30 years mandarory in jail or mental facility for these crimes. No exceptions.
