Abuse an Animal, GO to Jail!
My friend, Stephen Wells, Executive Director of Animal Legal Defense Fund posted the horror story below.
Sadly, this is not an isolated incident. Goes on everyday. Help if you can.

Don’t let Bella’s death be in vain.
Bella, an 11 year-old Shepherd mix, was strangled with a zip-tie, shoved into a garbage bag, and beaten with a shovel. Her skull was fractured, and she died as a result of her injuries. Her abuser received just 4 months in county jail.
It’s jaw dropping…
But I am sad to say this situation is not unique — and the issue stems from the state laws that are in place to “protect” animals. I think we can both agree that Bella was not adequately protected by the law, nor did she receive the justice she deserved.
