Increase jail time to 5 years

Animal cruelty is an ongoing unnecessary and down right disgusting act that is inflicted on animals that cannot fend for themselves. In recent cases a pup was dropped from a second story window onto a concrete driveway and the most highlighted case of the passed 3 years in The dog Buckley who had his ears cut off!
In Victoria the penalties for animal cruelty are 12 months cruelty and 2 years for aggravated cruelty and a $24,000 for aggravated cruelty.
Considering the amount of pain and trauma animals will have to go through and in some cases not live to see the light of day, is 2 years for aggravated cruelty realy enough?
