I am a dog lover. I lost my last dog to a drugged-out teen with a rifle. I filed charges and he was found guilty. Yes, he had court costs and a criminal record. And a fine of $25.00. The judge determined that I had no monetary loss because my best friend was a mutt, and I had been given a replacement. (This of course did not include consideration or compensation of 7 years worth of medical care, vaccinations, taxes, food, etc.) You simply cannot put a value on a pet who may be your best friend, or your family. However, in a sense my dog was valued at $25.00. That is almost as ridiculous as what these people are asking for.
