The FBI recently announced that they would now be keeping track of Americans convicted on charges of animal cruelty due to a strong connection between people who commit crimes against animals and those who commit crimes against humans. It is refreshing to see the FBI keeping a closer watch on these terrible people.
Penalties for animal cruelty in America are sadly lacking and only the most heinous crimes against animals are considered worth prosecuting. Hopefully this increased surveillance will result in more serious charges and more consistent sentencing.
