Harsher punishment for animal abusers

It is proven that animals do have feelings. Punishment should be the same for animal abuse as child abuse and elder abuse. Animal abuse is just as emotionally scarring as abuse to a human.

Virginia Governor
President of the United States
Virginia State Senate
Virginia State House
U.S. Senate
U.S. House of Representatives
Harsher punishment for animal abusers

Sincerely,

      All animals need to be treated humanely. That means they need proper amounts of food water ad shelter with good living conditions.

      Penalties are not harsh enough. Way too many stories EVERY DAY about animal abuse/neglect and they only get a slap on the wrist. THIS MUST CHANGE NOW!!

      There is an epidemic of animal abuse in this country, WHY well some should never own an animal, and then we in this country do NOT have any harsh penalties for this abuse, a slap on the wrist is not cutting, people continue with no real punishment, animal abuse leads to other abuse as we can see in what is happening in this country, rude and crude killing machines... Please lets address this we NEED to address it, it won't go away and is only getting worse....Thank You

      I can no longer tolerate the level of animal abuse in this country or this world. It needs to be stopped.
