Democrat Todd Kaminsky said if a person is convicted of abusing an animal, authorities will be able to track them with the proposed database.

“The public would also know who you are,” he said. “If you own a dog and you’re on a block with someone who is a serial dog abuser, you want to know that right? So it really puts animal cruelty on par with other cruelty we see in our society and it’s about time that happens.”
