It should be a law that punishment for animal cruelty is the same thing the person did to an animal. If they starved them, then put the person in a cell for same amount of time with no food. If they set the animal on fire, same should be done to them. I know that’s not realistic or ever going to happen, but that’s how strongly I feel about it. But, karma has a mysterious & persistent way of dealing out “you reap what you sow.” These sick people will get what they deserve, eventually.
