Exposing the Big Game

[New York Times does it again! With friends like them, what animal needs enemies?]

Petition · Food and Drug Administration: Reduce drug waste and environmental hazards by changing FDA drug expiration policy · Change.org

Harsher punishment for animal cruelty-Ponce’s Law
Debbie Taylor Darino Daytona Beach, FL

I have presented a proposed amendment to our State Legislature for consideration of amending the current animal cruelty laws specifically F.S. 828.12 (2)(a)(b) which is a third degree felony to impose stricter, harsher punishment and penalties in the event of the abuse, torture,and killing of innocent animals. It will give the Judge more freedom to sentence these abusers to jail while also sentencing them to have no contact or owning animals, etc. at the court’s discretion.
