    Who here thinks that state laws should be changed so you can sue for the statutory MAXIMUM if somedody kills one of your pets?

    As it is you can only sue for the "value" of your pet which is $0s for cats and $0 for a mutt. You can only sue for the money you have spent on the animal, getting it fixed, and vet bills. I beleive this is WRONG because most people feel that their pets are FAMILY and when you lose a FAMILY member it is MENTAL distress which is allowed as punitive damages.

    Not only should you be able to sue, the perp should do time. I try not to hate any person - but people who kill other people's pets do stretch that premise for me.

    Now that would depend on why the pet was killed.
    Perhaps by another on his property protecting his property/livestock?

    I think pet owners should be prosecuted to the maximum for damage their pet does.

    Do you think killing a family member should go unpunished?

    Some of the early signs of serial killers are that they tortured/killed pets as children.


    If a child is doing it they need to get that child some kind of help FAST, and keep an eye on him/her.

    If it's an adult, yes, we need stronger penalties.

    Ahh.

    Still it is not like killing a human. Although I like pets better than most humans.
    I would still sacrifice my pet to save a human life.

    Christ US WTF is your problem? If you are not interested in this topic then please kindly go somewhere else. I and a couple of others understand how important our pets are to us and feel that taking those Family Members away from us should cost the killer MONEY. Not many states prosecute for animal cruelety and if they do the sentences are WEAK.
