When did it become okay to treat a family member, 2 or 4 legged, like a lamp? I seem to remember that the current trend in thinking is that people who torture animals MAY go on to become serial killers. Torture or neglect in a hospital of ANY kind is horrible to the one being harmed AND those who are expecting their loved one to be cared for. That the laws to protect them continue to define an animal as property dates to a time when we were ignorant to the fact that animals have feelings and CARE deeply for their caregivers. Change the law and call it "LACI's Law" so that all creatures, great and small, can live with dignity. Laci is loved and missed, and the Shera's hearts hurt each day. They want to see that no one else has to suffer as they and Laci have. To change the law will be JUSTICE FOR LACI and all of our other than human family members. It's the right thing to do NOW, not later when another family has needlessly suffered, and another beautiful loving heart is lost.
