President Trump, Enact Harsher Animal Cruelty Laws in the United States

Messages Sent So Far
Dear President Trump,
I am writing to ask you and your administration to enforce harsher penalties for people who commit animal cruelty against animals. This issue is not only a serious problem here in the United States, but all around the world.
In the United States, about 6-8 million dogs & cats are abused, and that number is only an estimate, as some cases go unreported due to the abuser getting away with it, and the animal is severely hurt and or dies. People who abuse animals move on to abusing small vulnerable children and then step up their hideous actions in raping and murdering people.
Can you give an explanation into why there are so many loopholes in the Licensing & Registration under the Animal Welfare Act that was passed by Congress in 1966? This law is supposed to set stiff penalties for sponsors and promoters of outlawed animal fighting ventures. The law of this act passed by congress has not been enforced and prevented this activity like it is supposed to, according to the law signed into legislation.
Animals are living beings with feelings just like us humans, and are vulnerable to inhumane treatment from humans and are victimized so much more, because of a lack of severe animal cruelty laws that the government treats as just a petty crime just because they are animals! Animals have the right to live too. Just because they can't tell us how they feel doesn't mean we should mistreat them. Dogs are man's best friend and do so much for us all in helping us in crisis, and providing unconditional love, and also are used by the police in helping solve crimes in criminal cases. Animals also help find missing and deceased people, help detect illegal drugs, bombs, and even diseases, and also have very intellectual keen abilities in helping people out from danger. They also provide much needed assistance to disabled people as service animals! How could you hurt an animal that is helping people in need?
These animals should have equal treatment just like us human beings with their wonderful attributions to mankind with what they do for us!
So why not put these animals as a priority in keeping them safe from harm and enacting severe penalties for people who abuse them? The federal government needs to immediately enact a mandatory animal abuse registry for ALL animal abusers, just like what is required by law for sex offenders. This must be done in all 50 states to track convicted animal abusers, and to alert other people of their whereabouts. I WOULD NOT want to be living next door to someone who has committed an heinous act of violence towards an animal, because these people are very dangerous people and are a threat to the rest of society, with their repulsive violent actions! Also, what needs to be done, is when a person is found guilty of animal abuse, the law should ban the person from ever owning or being around animals ever again!
If these actions were put into place, it would definitely curtail the amount of crimes such as domestic violence, rape and murder that is happening on every street in America! We should be able to feel safe walking the streets in America, but with the lax laws currently in place for animal abusers, it is making our streets a dangerous and opportunistic place for these horrid crimes to persist. And these crimes will persist and worsen if the government continues to slap the abuser on the hand for their punishment. The government is basically saying that it is acceptable behavior to abuse animals, so go out and do it again! The punishment given should include a substantial fine and very lengthy jail time for their heinous actions, and NOT a few hours in jail, and a small fine!! We have a long way to go for our country to become ONE GREAT NATION if our government continues to ignore this serious problem that is growing at an alarming rate! Please President Trump, pass harsher laws that will send out a strong message to animal abusers, that you will be SEVERELY punished for your reprehensible actions!
Nothing would make me happier then to see you sign into legislation "The Animal Cruelty Act" into law providing for severe penalties for animal abusers. It would be such an honor to be present at the White House, and witness you signing this legislation into law. President Trump, please take a stand, and show the whole world that Animal Cruelty will not be TOLERATED in the United States of America! Thank you very much!!

And please stop the heinous, harmful roundups of America's wild horses and burros for the benefit of billionaire welfare ranchers and their livestock. These wild horses and burros really are on their own land, by fossil records and by a Congressional Act passed in 1971. This is a serious blot on your administration, which includes the BLM, the DOI, Dept. of Ag, Fish and Wildlife Service. You are doing the same thing without proof of brucellosis in Montana with Yellowstone's bison. Our horses and burros are being penned and eventually sent to Mexico to slaughter. YOU MUST STOP THIS!
