• Yes. It's morally wrong.

    Abuse is wrong. I thought this was a simple thing to understand. We are all animals, so technically this means, should abusers be killed? Yes, totally. I still need twenty three words so... Yea. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero. Overall, abuse is just immoral.

  • Only when it's intentionally

    People who abuse animals for their amusement should face death penalty. Those people are sick and if they can do something like that to animals who are innocent one hundred percent just imagine what would they do if a human being made them angry. Animal abuse other crimes. We should not let people with those genes continue existing.

  • Cruelty is cruelty

    ...And it perpetuates itself like a bad gene. If an animal torturer/murderer is allowed to breed, their progeny most likely will have that evil gene, since the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. There is justification for snuffing out evil. We did it with Hitler. Evil is evil and immoral is immoral. Animal abusers are evil and immoral. Killing is wrong, so neutralize them by sterilization.

  • Yes, they should

    Animals are live beings with a conscious. Abusing them and only having to pay a fine is not enough to learn a lesson about the value of life. Pushing abuse onto animals is the same as abusing humans, it's just been switched onto a different living being. Humans are 'animals', so then why are people so fired up about abusing other humans when people so easily abuse animals? Why can't people just let animals live free and enjoy life? Animal abuse is not right, and should be punishable by death.

  • Animals are not toys!

    Animals are people to. They do not deserve to be tossed around or beaten to death by someone who was SUPPOSED to LOVE them. Animals are not personal property they are not "pets" they are unique in every way we are. We humans may share little resemblence to them but we. Are. The. Same.

  • In some cases yes

    If they torture an animal to the point of death, then that is done with malice and intent and they should be held accountable. Someone that can do that to an animal I feel has no place amongst us. Maybe a lengthy jail term first time and then if it happened again, you know that person cannot be rehabilitated and then I believe death is a viable punishment. Or if such a horrific first crime then I do believe in death for retribution. If they are allowed to do it and only get a slap on the wrist then it will just get worse from there.

  • Animal abuse will never be right.

    Some humans treat animals as if they are property. People in some states can be punished to death for killing another human and animals aren't inferior and are better in some ways. Animals are loyal and care for their owners. Animal abuse can never be stopped unless we take those who abuse animals and get them off this planet.

  • Animal abuse is wrong

    Of course human should get arrested for animal abuse. People should think and realize that by beating the animal you're not doing any good and you're only making the animal act more aggressively towards you and others!
    It's immoral and irresponsible. I believe, you should get arrested for animal abuse!

  • Animal abuse should be punishable by death

    Animals are not inferior to humans. Animal abuse is just like any other abuse. The law is way too lenient on animal abusers and they need to be punished. Animals are family members too. How would you feel if someone injured or killed your family member? Murdering animals is still murder and it should have the same penalty as human murder.

  • Life is life

    Just because humans have the ability to think doesn't make us different from animals. If anything we should know better than to be cruel to animals and each other. People who torture animals because they believe humans are better deserve the same abuse as the innocent animals they hurt did

  • Seriously? No... No.

    First of all, I love animals of all kinds. The simple truth, however, is that animals are not as important to our society as humans. We should not set a precedent establishing that an animal's life is a precious as a human's. I think animal abuse SHOULD be punished. But it's not murder to kill an animal.

  • Animal abuse is not ok.. But murdering the abuser is equally as wrong.

    Animal abuse is wrong and should have a punishment enforced if it happenes but the punishment for abuse should not be equal to or more severe than the punishment given for killing a human(meaning the death penalty). It is generally believed that an animal is not on the same level as a human.

  • Yes, in some cases.

    There is something wrong with some of those who would hurt animals; they are clearly bad people and can't be fixed. Animals may well feel fear for their lives just as much as a person, assuming they understand the situation. They have no I'll intent and do not deserve such treatment.

  • No not at all

    First of all, 'animal' abuse occurs everywhere, especially within animals themselves. It depends on what you mean or perceive by 'abuse'. Do I think it's wrong for a human being to use their power to hurt another animal, yes torture should not be tolerated but the meaning of 'torture' can be fluctuating, especially with the fact that there is no clearcut view to what is 'animal abuse'. For example, in Spain it is widely accepted and celebrated to perform lacerations on a bull as a cultural phenomenon, whether in the United States it might seem as cruel and unacceptable. I don't personally think you should degrade, hurt or torture an animal and I do think you deserve a sentence for doing so but death is a little bit too strong.

  • Against capital punishment anyway

    This highlights the emotional vengeance component of capital punishment.

    I'm a big fan of animals. Hate the idea of animal abuse, but the idea that I would exact vengeance like this is just as disgusting as the act of animal abuse.

    Purely an emotional appeal with little to no social benefit.

  • Of course they have to!!!

    Even they are animals, they are the same living things us. If a person took away an animal's life, they have to have have they're lives equally.
    I don't even understand why they could kill cute animals like that. Also, if they don't stop it immediately, this thing will go on forever.

  • No, that's going too far

    Animal abuse is a horrible, disgusting, inhuman thing and everyone who supports it is a complete and utter @55hole but death sentence? It's not THAT bad. It definitely shouldn't go unnoticed and maybe people who abuse animals should get more than charges but not execution! I'm thinking maybe like 1-5 years in prison.
