Make Aggravated Animal Cruelty a Class Five Felony

1,537 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We demand that law makers inrease aggravated animal cruelty to a minimum of a class 5 felony! Aggravated animal cruelty is currently a class six felony in the state of Colorado, meaning at the end of the day the maximum prison sentence is only eighteen months in prison! The reason this is unacceptable is because the nature of the crime is a precursor to far worse things. Keeping the people who willingly torture, mutilate and abuse animals for their pleasure off the street is a way to help prevent them from escalating to humans. Also I would like to see a heavy pyschological evaluation on people that commit these particular crimes.

    Even Class 5 is to light of a sentence. How can anyone look into the eyes of any animal and not see it waits just to be loved.

    Crulety to animals has got to be made a felony and I keep seeing that it is in the state of Colorado then I see where it is not. N. Dakota legislature has made cruelty to animals a felonly.
