Make Penalties for Animal Abuse More Severe!

  • By: Ben Elias
  • Target: George W. Bush, President of the United States, U.S. Government
Animal Abuse is a severe problem in the United States and we must take action NOW.

Each year thousands of animals are injured or die of abuse and neglect. Often this violence against animals goes unpunished. But it should not be ignored despite the fact that statistics show that there is a strong correlation between violence against animals and violence against humans. Studies show that animal cruelty can be one of the earliest and most dramatic indicators that an individual is developing a pattern of inflicting suffering on others. In addition, statistics show that many violent criminal offenders have histories of serious, repeated animal cruelty as children or teens. These violent people must be severely punished for their crimes. Perhaps before their violence spreads to hurt more animals and people.

Animals have rights just like humans. They don't deserve to be tortured and abused. An animal deserves the protection of the state. The law must be more strict against animal abusers. Please sign now and urge President Bush to take action to increase the penalties for animal abusers. You will be helping get criminals off the streets...!!
Dear President Bush,

Animal Abuse must stop! Animal neglect cannot be allowed. Across the United States, thousands of animals are severely mistreated. Often this violence against animals goes unpunished. Animals have rights just like humans. They don't deserve to be tortured and abused. The people who commit these crimes are not getting enough time behind bars. Animal abuse crimes are often overlooked, despite the fact that statistics show that there is a strong correlation between violence against animals and violence against humans. These violent people must be severely punished for their crimes. An animal deserves the protection of the state. Are they not as important as a person. Are people somehow more valuable? No, we're not. The law must be more strict against animal abusers. Please take action to increase the penalties for animal abusers. You will be helping get criminals off the streets... perhaps before they take violent action against people as well!

Thank You,
The Undersigned.
