What do you think the penalty for animal cruelty should be?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 30, 2006
“That’s easy: the death penalty.”
“I think it should be a misdemeanor with at least 50 hours of community service for the first offense, a hard 40 for the second.”
“I’m an animal lover, so I think it should definitely be a felony. It’s wrong to hurt animals, period. They’re the same as us. They have a heartbeat. They have the same blood.”
“I think they should have to do jail time and not just get out of it by paying a fine. Paying a fine won’t teach them anything.”
