The public needs to be informed of animal cruelty cases and made aware of the action taken against animal abusers. Unfortunately many times charges are not pressed against the abuser, or the abuser is not sentenced to the fullest extent of the law. Animal cruelty must be taken seriously, not only for the sake of the abused animals, but also for the safety of the public. Studies have shown that those who abuse animals also commit crimes against humans.
