A new law has passed that allows states to register animal abusers just like sex offenders. More and more states are implementing the law to enable the public to access the offender’s list at any time. This will help animal shelters and animals owners from interacting with people who are not authorized to be near animals. An animal shop can refuse service to anyone on the animal abuser list. First-time offenders will be registered for two years, if they commit a further crime, then an additional five years will be added. Animal abusers are outraged at this list and are pleading their fifth amendment, while others think it is an excellent idea.
