• Yes but even if was nobody ever gets strict enough to reinforce it.

      yep see a lot of animal bills passed in congress still none get strict enough to make them stick
  • 7-2-2017 What, you want cops to have more authority and shoot more people?
    • Linda Joy
      Absolutely not! But, really? That's what you got out of this question? But since you went there... I've never been shot by a cop. I've never personally known anyone who was shot by a cop. I know a handful of people who were shot by other citizens but none of them by a cop. Is this really a fear in your life?

      I watch news stories and many states are showing signs of cops being uniformed bandits, robbing tourists. Every now and then there is a story about a cop coming onto someone's property and shooting their dog just because it ran up to them. Judges will do almost anything to excuse a cop for such things. We are very near the point of "we the people" withdrawing our consent to be governed. Of course that means all out war between cops and citizens, judges leaving the country, and politicians poo-pooing the rebellion and scolding the citizens for refusing to cooperate. It has happened in many countries in recent years. The USA has been showing symptoms of impending collapse since WW2.

      That's not what I see in my city.
  • No, not a felony but should have very strict laws along with harsh punishment including prison time.
    • Jewels Vern
      That's what felony means.
  • Yes and the sooner the better.
  • It is, isn't it?
  • I think it should have harsher penalties.
  • Yes, I thought it already was.
  • It can be, under the 2007 amended US Animal Welfare Act of 1966. The main problem is, the state treats animals better than it's people anyway.
    • Linda Joy
      What would you know about it other than what you see in media? You don't even live here! Have you ever been here? And if yes, where did you go?
  • According to PACT (the 2019 revision of Section 48 of Title 18 of the US Federal Criminal Code), it is a federal felony to purposely harm any non-human mammal, bird, reptile, or amphibian. I guess mouse traps are criminal paraphernalia now. Enjoy either getting hanta virus or spending up to seven years in federal prison.
    • Berzyerk
      No one is going to federal prison for performing pest control!
  • No, I think that is rather extreme. Humans should come first. PeTA puts other animals before humans but they're insane. PeTA and ALF would like this.
  • Because we destory babies we abuse animals more. YOu can't not care about a baby but care about a seal
    • bostjan64
      False dilemma. Red herring.
  • In Pennsylvania USA It's a Felony
