NY: Animal-abuser registry plan advances in Oneida County

[romesentinel.com – 5/3/19]

A plan to start a registry of convicted animal abusers in Oneida County advanced through a legislative committee this week but not without questions.

The Board of Legislators’ Health and Human Services Committee passed the proposal on to the full board Wednesday. The measure would establish an website similar to that of sex offenders, with offender’s names, residence, birth dates, photo and a description of the offense and the sentence. Animal shelters and pet sellers would be able to check it to help reduce the chances of putting animals into the hands of known abusers.

Authorities expect only a few offenders would be listed as cases are rare.

…and if they use the SO registry as a model then you will have the old cat lady who took in too many cats and couldn’t properly feed or care for them on the registry for life, unable to ever own a cat again, next to the mug shot of a person convicted multiple times for running a dog fighting ring.

You all realize what they’re trying to do, right?

By creating another fictitious registry that they likely are already aware is counter-productive (and simply laughable), legislation knows it will be harder to be confronted by objectionists over the innecessity and counter-productiveness of the sex offender registry; because, “Look guys!” ***Points to animal abuse reg.*** “The SRO isn’t the only registry, and chomozz aren’t the only ones being shamed’zzz!” >=]

My wife says, leaving my dog in the car , with the air on, is ok .
If I leave Willy Nellson on the radio , Thats Abuse !

I say the more registries the better. Let’s put everyone in a registry, drunk drivers, speeders, child abusers, shoplifters, jaywalkers, etc. The more the merrier. By making everyone special it makes no one special. The only way to do sway with this thing is put more people on a registry until people realize how stupid it is. If we are lucky we can catch a few legislators in the process .
