    No --- a registry is another government characterization of our personal lives. When we see a registry of married couples who practice sodomy, or a registry of children who take white bread sandwiches to school (clearly, closet racists), then we should consider it.

    Make a law - turn them in - and get them punished. You say the get a "slap on the wrist". So, fix the damn law. Make it hurt. Are you going to be the one who decides who goes into the registry and who doesn't? The government already knows every man, woman, and child who has been prosecuted for animal cruelty. Why do we need to tell them again?

    Maybe a little vigilante justice would go a long way ....

    There is a bounced check registry. What Happens if You Write Bad Checks?

    There is an eviction registry Tenant Screening | Landlord Credit Check and Background Check

    There is a child support registry Federal Case Registry

    There are probably hundreds more. Yes, have an animal abuser registry. All the shelters, humane societies and rescue agencies as well as on line access should be able to consult a registry.

    Well, I was told we can't just shoot them (or hang them I suppose).

    Punishments should be MUCH more severe, and the shame factor should follow them for a LONG time.

    It's difficult to comprehend how someone can abuse an animal, they essentially are like children, innocent and trusting.

    Ok --- so pass a law that requires that your local police department notify local shelters, humane societies, and rescue agencies when they convict an animal abuser.

    Let's see --- 3 people per police department to monitor and maintain the "animal abuser registry" -- just how many police departments are there in the US?

    Then, next week, liberals decide that, since there is a link between animal abuse and other crimes, all people convicted of animal abuse should be subject to an additional "abuser tax", put on the no-fly list, and be prevented from living with in 500 miles of the nearest school.

    The danger of government lists is that everybody on it is presumed to be the same .... and subject to the same punishment, no matter how heinous, or how trivial, their crime might be. .

    Animal abuse is a sign of a troubled/sick mind. I would support a registry for anyone who has a history of doing that.

    Anyway...so far, this thread has not shown pics or talked in detail about abuses but I am afraid it could turn to that and it will freak me out. So...I responded to the question, but now I have to leave the thread..just in case.
