FBI Said to Begin Tracking Animal Cruelty Cases

September 19, 2014  | 

The FBI will begin tracking animal cruelty cases just as they track other crimes, Wayne Pacelle of The Humane Society of the United States said in a blog post Tuesday, reports USA Today.

Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, said John Thompson with the National Sheriffs' Association told him that Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comer has signed off on including animal cruelty offenses in the Uniform Crime Report.

Local agencies will also track cruelty cases to report to the FBI, said Pacelle's blog.

"No longer will extremely violent cases be included in the "other offense" category simply because the victims were animals. Just as the FBI tracks hate crimes and other important categories, we will now have critical data on animal cruelty," said Pacelle.

Wait, Wayne Pacelle had a comment about animal abuse. The same Pacelle who supported and provided a mouthpiece for the animal rights terrorists "Animal Liberation Front" who burned medical labs and destroyed years of research that would have saved lives?

The same Pacelle who while at PETA stole research monkeys from NIH who were later killed (humanely of course). Same guy who had vans running from Washington DC to Richmond while the guys in back killed dogs and cats while on the road south.

Humane Society are the bad guys, animal rights supporters and are anti-hunting, anti-pets, anti-horse riding and anti-research. He's a supporter of a rat=dog=child attitude and is a terrorist supporter. Nice can wrap a turd in shiny paper, it's still a turd.

Some states just don't have any decent animal cruelty laws. In Alabama, a couple years ago a man dragged a horse tied to his pickup truck to death and he did it on purpose. The state law was a $100 fine with no jail time possible, that is a terrible law. Animal cruelty laws need to have more teeth and be treated much more seriously. Most serial killers began by terrorizing animals and built up to people. It's a good indicator of a violent degenerate person.
