STOP THE CYCLE OF CRUETLY

                                 STOP THE CYCLE!!


                          In 2005 a person from Vassalboro was charged with 2 counts of animal cruelty. That person was fined $335., jailed 30 days, put on probation 1 year and permanently relinquished of his right to own or possess or have on his premises any animal{except wild bird feeder] {public record}. Out of this case there were 28 animals put to death.                        


                          This person has no children. This person has a sibling with children who are allowed to stay at the home on weekends. If this person is not allowed to care for animals should this person be allowed to care for sibling%u2019s children? How is the cycle of cruelty to be stopped?    


                      Last summer I found out that this person left the children alone with a grandparent that has stage 2 ALZHIMERS. When I talked to the sibling it was said that the%u201D 9 year old could call 911 if something happens to the 5 year old%u201D. I feel that animal cruelty leads to domestic abuse.


                 If a Judge has ordered no more animals at the home. There will be no children at the home unless supervised by the parent: when the parent goes home so does the children. Children only learn what the adults around them teach them. The children depend on us adults to protect them. I have spoken to several animal control officers from different towns around. They have told me there is no law for this. I think Maine%u2019s last new on cruelty was in August 2006 LD 1881 went into effect: This law is a great improvement because victims can ask the judge to enter an order so that Victim can take the animals with them or find temporary housing for the animals. Thank- you Governor Baldacci. I strongly feel we need tougher laws on animal cruelty! Example: the defendant must pay a$1000 for each animal that has to be put down [no excuses] this one case$28000.00 the money should go to animal shelters or sanctuaries for animals. I believe this would help stop cruelty. If a Judge orders no animals an animal control officer should have to check at least twice the first year, then once a year thereafter%u2019.  REMEMBER IT IS NOT A RIGHT TO OWN AN ANIMAL IT IS A PRIVLAGE!.                                                                                                                                                                                                          


                                                                                                                    

 LETS WAKE UP ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL PEOPLE TO THE TRUTH OF CRUETLY.
THERE IS NO LAW STATING THAT A PERSON THAT HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH CRUETLY TO ANIMAL CAN NOT CARE FOR SIBLING CHILDREN THEREFOR THE CYCLE CONTINUES.LETS STOP THE CYCLE NOW!
