More regularly than I’d like I read about cases of animal cruelty. Every time it makes me sick to my stomach to think how someone could treat their animals this way.
Most recently I read about Jacob Joshua McAlister who was charged with animal cruelty for letting two of his labs die in their kennel from starvation, dehydration, and exposure. Mr. McAlister will be sentenced this April in Mower County. My question to you is in these cases what do you think the appropriate punishment is and do you think our justice system provides that? Interested to see your comments below.
