I was beyond ecstatic to have read this headline this morning: "Animal Abusers Will Now Be Registered Like Sex Offenders."

This has been a long time coming and to be honest, I feel like these people who dare hurt another animal are getting off easy. But I am happy with the step being taken in the right direction.

The very similar and infuriating fact with both children and animals is that if abused, are being wronged by someone who is stronger, smarter, and overall more dominant then them. They have absolutely no shot unless someone steps in on their behalf.

Let's hope the implementation process is quick and efficient!

So if this article scares you, I would watch your back because we are coming for you.

Check out the original announcement here.
