That’s a hard one to answer……I think people seem to be more angry, less in 
control over their own lives, and that’s when they tend to be more cruel, 
showing their power over helpless people and animals! On the other hand, 
crazies have always been around, but we didn’t hear of the atrocities as 
quickly, if ever, thanks to cyberspace.

At least with laws, whether they actually stop the horrible things from 
happening or not, one can at least try to prosecute…..without them, one 
couldn’t even try.

You know, sometimes it seems we are progressing because of all the animal 
welfare movements and all the laws to protect animals.  There are more and more 
people learning about abuse and taking a stand against it which is very 
encouraging.  Yet it seems that in the past it was just plain common sense, 
decency, and compassion that kept us from needing so many of those laws to 
protect the animals.  Sometimes I can't tell if people are getting worse or 
better regarding the treatment of animals.
