@bigthink Asks Should #AnimalAbuses Register Like #SexOffenders?

AnimalAbuserPeople who abuse animals are predatory and hurt innocent victims. How is this different than people who are registered sex offenders? It’s not. Here’s what mental health professionals say and here’s what the country is doing about it: people who have a history of hurting vulnerable animals have a propensity to be abusive and/or violent criminals. States like Tennessee, Connecticut, Washing, and specified counties in various states already have  or are considering passing laws to so that people convicted of animal abuse must register like sex offenders. The Humane Society acknowledges that the most common type of abuse is neglect. Why don’t we have a registered list for something like that crime? Oh yeah, no list necessary – special parents like that go to the big house.
