Logically, starvation on that scale qualifies as torture. I'm pretty sure if you did that to a human it would be called torture. Can they at least charge them separately for EACH AND EVERY animal?

Stretch is darling.

From my legal background, Lil, I would say yes, they can.

And most certainly SHOULD.

And forget to feed them while they're doing time.

And no toilet access.

Theoretically they can, I agree . . . but there always seems to be some reason why they don't. We're way out of my field of expertise here . . . I wonder if there's a limit on the charge stacking . . . or if they just never care enough to charge for each one.

That is horrific, those poor animals. Especially with food in sight, it makes it so much worse, all they needed was a person to bring it to them.

They're only being charged for the animals that expire, from my understanding. I believe the count is currently at 42 misdemeanor charges.

I've never known any limit, Lil. I've seen some really imaginative and tall towers of stacked charges. It may be a matter of not wanting to bother with the paperwork.

Yeah, that's what I figured with animals. Nail someone for drugs and we can stack the charges to the ceiling. Starve animals to death and its too much paperwork.

Fantastic. Starvation qualifies as torture?

I suppose it was ruled as being so. I'm happy as a clam about it.
