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.
Animals should have rights too!
Prison is actually too good for these cretins!

Phyllis Stites, United States7 days ago Comments: Class 5 felony should have happened a long time ago for animal cruelty

Dona LaSchiava1 week ago Comments: The current animal cruelty laws in terms of penalties, are EGREGIOUSLY LENIENT and desperately need to be changed to reflect the brutality of today's animal abuse cases. The current laws are FAILING MISERABLY not only in terms of justice, but in terms of serving as meaningful deterrents. Our companion animals are being UNMERCIFULLY BRUTALIZED as a result! GET TOUGH ON ANIMAL ABUSE!
