    The saddest part of this is that in all likelihood, nothing will be done. The kid’s parents will get a ticket or a fine or something-animal abuse is only a misdemeanor and this little **** will probably not spend a day in jail. Hasn’t anyone learned from people like Jeffrey Dahmer? Many serial killers started off tormenting the only things smaller and weaker than themselves-other children, or ANIMALS. Wake up, Washington, and make animal abuse a felony, with mandatory psychiatric treatment. Some of the lives saved could be human.

    Lawmakers need to make animal abuse a serious crime with serious penalties! This is such a tragic problem and it needs to be delt with. I can’t imagine what goes through people’s minds that they think doing this to an animal is ok. I strongly agree with Yiipy Skippy! Wake up Washington.
