The sad thing is, we do not need to make the law tougher and HARDER and longer to prosecute, especially while these animals sit and wait in cages for MONTHS while the owner is prosecuted.

What we need is for Judges to step up and actually give the Maximum sentence (18 months in jail) to so of these people! So rather than watch a Sheriff (who has not cared about this matter for the last 10 years) GRANDSTAND about changing the law, how about have your Deputies trained and ENFORCE these laws rather than rely on Just animal control. And if you REALLY want to do something how about standing up and urge Judges to do the MAXIMUM WITH THE LAWS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS!
