WDAM Viewpoint- Animal Abuse & Neglect

From time to time we hear from you, our viewers, concerning reports of animal abuse and neglect. What has surprised me is how often we have heard these reports from our area.

Just this week we reported on a case where a woman from Wiggins has been sentenced to jail and fined for an extreme case of animal cruelty. Many of the comments we get from viewers call for stronger legislation and changing the first offense of animal cruelty from a misdemeanor to felony.

If you know of a case of animal abuse or neglect, please call your sheriff's department, Hattiesburg Animal Control or Hub City Humane Society.

This is today's Viewpoint.
