An Animal Abuse Registry?
A few times in recent years animal rights activists have floated the idea of an animal abuse registry similar to sex offender registries. Such a measure recently passed in Suffolk County, New York. The idea is to not only protect animals but also people, as there have been some links between animal abuse and other violent crime. What do you think? Should this be a standard measure? For information, take a look at the Wall Street Journal Law Blog, the New York Times, the Associated Press, and Time Magazine.
