MOBILE, Ala.(WALA)- Humane officials say animal cruelty has been a big problem in our area. They say they have seen animals mistreated and abused; some intentionally tortured. They have also seen many cases where the abuser walks off with what seems to be a simple slap on the wrist.

Humane authorities say, especially now, more and more people are pushing to change that.

“People are tired of seeing the animals hurt and injured and mistreated,” said Montgomery Humane Officer Scott Hill.“They experience the same things we do. They experience joy. They experience pain.”

Hill said he has seen that pain for more than 6 years as a humane officer. He believes the laws to protect the animals are already in place, but need to be changed.

“We have some pretty strong laws in Alabama. They just need to be stronger,” he said.

In fact, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) ranks the state of Alabama number 45 on its 2011 list of “Humane State Rankings.”

And this matter also should extend to the person who has dogs and keeps them in their backyards and never, ever cleans up their droppings. Not to mention that they never take them for a walk. Somehow, these people should not be allowed to have pets and their neighbors should simply be able to call the Animal Control Officer and report the problem and the Animal Control Officer should have the power to remove the dogs and fine the owner. The problem is that there are usually laws on the books but those charged with enforcing them refuse to do so.

You are right about the dog crap being left in the yard,if you have ever lived by some one that doesn't clean up after there dog it can ruin a evening for you sitting on your deck during the summer especially. You should walk your dog now and than,but carry poop bags with you !

Okay, so what gets me are all of the dogs on the beach. I hear that some property owners are advertising we have pet friendly beaches. Is this true? Are dogs allowed to run free on the beaches to do their business? I have seen it more then once. Never use to be that way. Only one man picks up after his dogs when he walks them, way down on west beach. Shame it's not more pet owners.:(

I've seen the beach patrol chase people with dogs off of the beach but sometimes some Redneck might get away with walking their dog on the beach.
