Make the punishment for Animal Cruelty equal to that of Child Cruelty.

This petition had 1,454 supporters


I have always been a big animal lover and love watching the animal rescue programmes. However, it has always saddened me to see the amount of animal abuse taking place. When I was 14 I decided that something needed to change so I started planning for this petition. I am now 16 years old and feel that I am ready to make the change which I feel is needed. The despicable crime of animal abuse should result in a jail sentence and the lifetime prohibition of owning or being around animals. Even if the abuse is minor, there is still no excuse and these criminals should have to pay for their hideous treatment of animals. Furthermore, I do feel that the current sentence of being banned from owning an animal for ten years along with only a small amount of jail time is not enough. Is there really difference between animal abuse and child abuse?
