I just cannot pass up the opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to Judge Larry Hyman in his ruling on the recent animal cruelty case before him. As the director of an animal sanctuary – SC CARES – I’m elated to know that more and more people are joining the opinion that animals are sentient creatures and deserve respect.
Our animal laws are far from being what I think they should be to protect the creatures of this planet but this is definitely a step in the right direction. Animal abuse cannot be tolerated in any form and changing our way of thinking of animals and caring about them will move us toward being a more loving and peaceful people.
Thank you, Judge Larry Hyman, for your ruling and your caring nature.
