Default Animal abuse..Felony?

I personally think animal abuse and neglect should be classified as a felony. I feel that its not only a danger to the animal, but it could also be a danger to other people/pets. Also, its something that's very morally wrong. (I don't know about every other place, but here its not.)

What's your opinion on this?

Agree with you 100% on all points except that I think those who harm animals and children should be culled instead.

I don't even know if we have a department to call that cares out here. Breaks my heart. I honestly don't understand how someone can look into a sweet animals face and then hurt it.

I think real abuse should be, yes.
Not animal-rights nuts idea of abuse.
