We cringe in horror and are stunned by the cruelty that is so recklessly handed out to innocent animals. How can anyone commit such heinous deeds? Who would do such terrible things to a helpless animal?
It is sad to say that these questions frequently remain unanswered. Far too often law enforcement pays little or no attention to these horrible incidents. It is frightening to live in a world where such acts of cruelty rate a slap on the wrist or totally go unpunished.
Not only are these crimes against families, they are crimes against society. Cruel acts towards animals can be signs of worse things to come, often with human victims. The CONNECTION between animal cruelty and crimes committed against people is well documented. It is quite unfortunate that many of our lawmakers and law enforcement officials don't seem to make the connection between the two. If they did, we would see stronger laws to protect the innocent animals and stricter punishment for the monsters who break those laws.
As a society, we need to demand stronger sanctions for crimes committed against animals. We need to firmly take a stand and proclaim that animal cruelty will not be tolerated or disregarded. Ignoring it only invites more violence. We need to make a difference for all animals. We need to take them to our hearts!
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress
can be judged by the way its animals are treated."
