Should animal cruelty cases receive harsher penalties?
Animal cruelty sickens me. Well, as does any form of cruelty. Stories such as these make me wonder whether there is a species of sub-humans. It's incomprehensible that people would deliberately act in ways such as these. Disgusting.
Yet they will probably receive minimal punishment.
I don't know what types of penalties are appropriate for people who do these things - most certainly at the least they should be banned from ever owning or being responsible for a pet. Beyond that, i just despair that the world can be such a horrid place.
What is your view? What types of penalties are appropriate in cases of animal cruelty?
