Why do people get off easy for Animal Cruelty?

Newschannel 8

A woman convicted of animal cruelty after an emaciated pit bull was discovered eating at the carcass of another dog in her backyard was sentenced Monday to two days in jail.


The prosecutor had asked General District Judge Craig Johnston to impose a 10-day jail sentence, which is unusual for misdemeanor cases.

He said he felt compelled to seek a tough sentence because, "I feel there's a direct correlation between the way that humans treat animals and what they do in the rest of their life."

Two whole days for staving her dog to death...
