Quite honestly, there aren't enough effective laws being followed to convict or prosecute when there have been reported examples of abuse or neglect.

IMO it's not just about punishment for abuse of an animal - if someone shoots a domestic housecat it shows a lack of rational thinking and a lack of responsible gun ownership. Even if you're in a rural area that's still not normal behavior when a water gun or hose can effectively scare a cat off one's property.
