Q: What type of punishment do most people recieve when they are found guilty of animal abuse

February 7, 2009 | By George P. | 9 answers | Expired: 2007 days ago

I feel that those who abuse animals should recieve the same type of punishment that is handed out to child abusers

I personally think they should be handed the same abuse they gave the animal. Wouldn't that be a near perfect world.

I do think that animal abuse is under-punished. However, child abuse is a bigger deal (though it is also vastly under-punished). Meanwhile, property crimes and fraud get relatively heavy punishments. Animal abuse is a violent crime and animal abusers lack the moral inhibition to harm both animals & people.

I think they should go to prision and not be able to be around animals for the rest of their lives! Once an animal abuser, always an animal abuser in my eyes!
