Michael Rosenberg of Princeton, who already had charges against him for causing the death of one dog and injuring another has now been charged with injuries suffered by his own two dogs. Rosenberg's dogs have since been taken from his custody.

Rosenberg was convicted in 2011 for child endangerment involving sex with a juvenile and is required to register as a sex offender, according to the State Police database.

Anyone who would do something so heinous or egregious to a defenseless animal obviously has to have something seriously wrong with them and no care for the worth of life, whether it be human or animal. Are Rosenberg's actions the start of what would ultimately lead to more violent behavior against humans? Should we really wait to find out?

So for those that commit these horrific crimes against animals maybe  we just wipe them off the planet and be done with them? Take our poll and let us know what you think?
