I feel anyone convicted of abusing, torturing or maiming any animal, should be convicted of a felony, and imprisoned. If our Nation had more strict laws pertaining to animal abuse, then there would not be as much animal abuse. Maybe these sick individuals would think twice before needlessly harming an innocent animal. I also feel anyone convicted of felony animal abuse, should be forced to register as an animal abuser. Just like someone convicted of sex acts against a child, they be forced to register as an animal abuser, can not go near animals unsupervised, and can not own any animals. ANIMAL ABUSER can easily be entered on the front of a drivers license, or an ID card. We need to stop innocent animals from being abused and tortured, and this is a good start. The laws regarding animal abuse in several of our states, do not protect animals at all, and need to be seriously re-written. Why did human beings ever decide that an animals life is less important than their own Animal testing is absolutely horrible, and if most people knew what an animal is forced to endure, they would be sickened. Animals have rights, and this petition is a good start to making people realize it. Please sign this!
