The Campaign for an Animal Abuser Register website states:

"The reasons why someone abuses an animal can be complex. However, there can be no doubt, from convicted cases alone, that a large number of individuals enjoy being cruel to animals.

They enjoy torturing a defenseless living being, often a loving pet, and they enjoy watching their pain and suffering. These abusers go on to abuse again because they strongly desire to repeat that experience."

"They might choose other animals as their victims, or they might choose human victims, and sometimes they also kill their victims."

"That taste for cruelty and killing is what sets animal abusers apart from other criminals.

That is why they are dangerous, and that is why we need an Animal Abuser Registry."
