It is time for tougher laws in the United States for those who torture, maim, and kill animals.
This isn't just for animals it's also for our parents,our children, and their childrens safety.
While this is a much argued topic, there's no denying that there are some cases where people practice killing animals then move on to humans for instance, a man recues animals for the sole purpose of practicing on them and killing them in the process, and then goes into a store to stab a mother (for whom they say he didn't know) while her child was present. Then we have the case of a poor dog named Victory who was found in Texas with it's nose and lip cut clean off and done by the hands of a human who still has not been caught. If he/she could do this to an animal I dread to think what he/she could do to a human.
The point of tougher laws for animal cruelty is to not only give proper justice to the animals but also to remove a possible stepping stone to further acts violence.
