Enact the maximum sentence for animal abuse and cruelty

It was a conscious decision by Michael Faulkner to torture Queenie, his dog,  that spanned several weeks. This was a determined effort, in that it was a decision he made every day he did not provide food and water for her. At any point he could have stopped this cruelty. This indicates the intent is clear - he wanted to kill this dog and he wanted her death to be slow and painful.

*80% plus of domestic violence victims coming into shelters and/or programs report that their abuser abused animals.*
