Who is thinks pets are living creatures? Animal cruelty is no laughing matter and congresss allows it to happen for there is no punishment. It is a well known fact how and when someone abuses, tortures, abandons, and kills an animal they are more likely to do that to a fellow human. If someone kills your family pet, wouldn't you want justice? Humans are becoming more cruel and sadistic to animals and humans. It seems as though the state of TN does not care about animal rights. They'd allow a killer to do it again with a simple fine of $50. Do they now have beloved pets, especially for their children? Many pets provide solace, comfort and love for the disabled, lonely and elderly. Pets can teach children to trust again. Animals are alive, they have feelings. I'm sick of seeing animals get treated like trash and so should you. Why are our legislators allowing this to go on? Don't they realize they are just as responsible for murdering these animals for they do nothing about it. Wouldn't you want justice for these creatures that have no voice? Wouldn't you want justice for anyone who did this to your pet? The criminals show no remorse for these heinous crimes.
