Should Animal Cruelty Be a Felony? The Daily Dose #19

by The Daily Dose | 1.31.19

A bill before Congress would make animal cruelty a federal crime. It was introduced by a bipartisan pair of lawmakers from Florida, and would fix a legal loophole in animal welfare rules. Is it high time for this? Or a case of misplaced priorities?

    Please vote this into law. Aside from the horrible nature of these acts by themselves, people who would torture animals aren’t likely to treat other human beings much better. Must animals be yet another case if the savaging of the helpless and vulnerable in this culture? Is there no room for humanity to be humane?

    This is important because animals are living things that have feelings and are very complex. Each animal that lives on this earth should have a happy and enjoyable life.

    The question as posed is too broad to answer.

    Animal cruelty should not be a felony because farmers and ranchers will come under fire. PETA will twist the law to include livestock. PETA is already at our county fairs trying to trip people up.

    Animal cruelty is an indicator of dangerous violence against humans

    How can you make a dumb animal be a priority over a human baby being aborted at birth. These lawbreaking lawmakers are evil, especially in NEW YORK

    Yet abortion to term is not sorry what is wrong here human life is less important then a dogs treatment. You have crazy Doctors on video stating how they love ripping babies out of women and PPH tell how they do it and sell the body parts for research. Yet animals get better protection something is wrong with this country.

    Yes, animals should be treated with respect, not with cruelty, unless in some cases (I.e. a dog attacks you) you have the right to defend yourself.

    I strongly feel that any human being who can be cruel and abusive to an animal has the ability to be cruel and abusive to a human as well. Animals are innocent living creatures that deserve to be protected and respected.

    Intentional animal cruelty is a symptom of the failure of our human societies and cultures to be sustainable on a global planetary basis. Animal cruelty must be eliminated completely and in its place a harmonious nurturing sustainable gardening of our spacecraft Earth must exist in all people world wide to protect the ecological health of the planet. Which is by the way our only fully functioning livable environment that we have in space PERIOD !

    I have sent letters to my Lawmakers for many years supporting making animal abuse a felony. For decades research has shown that people who grew up abusing or killing animals grew up to be not only abusers of women and children but serial killers. Animals, like children and babies, can’t speak for themselves. DO THE RIGHT THING TO PROTECT THEM!!!!

    I've read a lot of comments here comparing this particular issue against the abortion issue....What I find ironic, is that the people who call themselves "Pro Life" actually want to do away with SNAP, CHIPS, Medicaid and even Meals on Wheels....How is this "Pro Life"?....."Pro Fetus" maybe....They want the child to be born, but they do not want the programs that would help it live or help our older people who may be in bad straits.

    All animal cruelty should be a felony. It is indefensible to ignore the suffering of Innocents and the warning signs that it provides. In addition, ALL animal farming conditions should be transparent, whistle blower sanctions should be lifted, and slaughterhouses should be open to the public.

    Make animal abuse a felony. Violence against animals outside of permitted hunting has no place in modern society and is often an early indicator of who will be violent against humans in the future.

    Maybe it would be a priority if they made murder to babies illegal, but no, the fucking Democrats have to have the freedom to kill children.
