Letter: Pets aren’t children

What was the Legislature thinking when it passed a bill to give child-like protection to pets in domestic violence and divorce cases? I’m troubled by all this elevation of mere dogs and cats. Pets are becoming the legal equals of children.

Anyone with an ounce of common sense can see how ludicrous it is to see no difference at all between a cocker spaniel and a child. Or between a gerbil and a child.
