Those that can come up with good answers do. Not everyone is going to have good answers. They will wait too long or not accept reality until it is too late. Is burying your dog not penalty enough?

You've lost your home, most of the contents, your pet, and now we want to put them in jail for over a year? Both parents are equally guilty. What do we do with the kids for the year or two that the parents are paying their debt to society?

How about if we just call it a misdemeanor then we only have to house their children for a couple months or so. The house will have gone from a terrible mess costing thousands of dollars to a total loss that a hazmat team needs to deal with. What the heck, they will have lost their jobs so it is the bank's problem anyway. It's only right, it was such a lovely dog.
I guess I didn't explain myself Better, sorry about that. I don't know what a felony really is (sounds bad). And for the "right" part. Leaving ones pet behind is not right. If you have a pet no matter what it is ( unless it's a hampster/girball or the like then as far as I'm concerned leave it) that pet is a kid in the family and who leaves kids behind.

A felony is any crime where the sentence is over on year in jail. We typically think of murder, rape, armed robbery, and such when we talk felony though there are many lesser crimes that are also felonies.

Aside from the jail time and any fines, in America you also loose your right to vote and own a firearm if you are convicted of a felony.

More often lesser felonies result in plea agreements for much shorter jail times and fines or judges sentence them to terms such 1 year in prison but 10-11 months suspended pending conditions of probation. Lesser felonies rarely result in prison terms for non-habitual offenders.

And you only lose some rights in some states, but not all. In Florida you lose a lot of rights, but in Florida it is a felony to drive with a revoked license too (so they use the term felony loosely). They are actually putting forth a measure in 2018 to restore all rights once criminal sentences are fully served. Of course one can always apply for clemency or a pardon.

It's no kid to me, probably wouldn't leave one behind unless I had to. I'll always put my family in front of an animal. A pet isn't anything close to kid in my book and calling one a kid is just craziness.

But either way abandoning your pet or leaving it to die suddenly becomes a matter that first responders end up dealing with while they should be rescuing people or hunting down looters. Maybe animal control should be out just euthanizing every pet they find and then sending a $5,000 per pet invoice to the pet owner. It's not like the Texans or Floridians had 5 minutes notice of the impending hurricane. If they had I would be far more forgiving.

They may kindly be leaving food for someone needier!

I grew up in a farm so I do know what your talking about there. But to leave them tied up with no chance of survival is wrong.

My dogs are family! Pure and simple. I would have no problem ending another human to save my dogs. That said I will not put their safety over that of my wife and daughter but i wouldn't let them be in unnecessary danger either. All our bugout plans include the dogs. They are my best tools and besides my wife and kid, my best friends. I don't care if people think it is crazy to call my dogs family, fact is they are more family to me then most of those who carry the same blood as me. Kids no but family definitely! Every other animal here is food. I wouldn't leave my food to suffer in a hurricane either. Screw the felony charges, you can't arrest the stupid out of them, but you can beat it out of them with a hammer.

most of the people who are worth feeding have a contingency plan and would have made a plan for their pets, the rest are just wards of the state anyway so they just expect someone else to look after them and their inconveniences.

Idiocracy grows every day and growth follows a sine curve
