My question involves personal property located in the State of: Wisconsin
1.) Is it animal cruelty (or some other crime) to adopt an animal and feed it to a carnivorous pet such as a snake?
2.) Does it make any difference if the animal is humanely stunned or killed versus being live-fed to fight for its life?
3.) Or, if there is an adoption contract where the terms state the pet isn't intended to be used as a feeder, is there come kind of breach of contract or acquiring the pet by deception that can be pursued (since the foster home would not have agreed to adoption if the person stated their intentions for the animal)?
All of these are on the assumption the animal was intended to be a pet, as I am well aware that carnivorous pets need to eat, and they sell feeders or pre-killed food for that very reason.
I'm not the one doing this or considering doing it. Quite the opposite, in fact. My girlfriend and I foster guinea pigs, and recently we got a chilling response to a friendly email we sent asking how they are settling in, where the person sent a picture of a snake, and indicated they fought bravely and squeal a lot, but he is satisfied with his purchase. In addition to the questions above, (4.) is there anything actionable here?
