In this Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 photo, men keep a stolen cat in a bird cage at the so-called "thieves market" in downtown Amman, Jordan. Dog breeding coupled with dognapping is a thriving business in Jordan, where lax laws call for only a $7 fine for violators and police remain hesitant to pursue those suspected of animal abuse. Activists have campaigned for years for increased penalties, but lawmakers seem uninterested to pursue it in a culture where animal abuse remains rampant. (AP Photo/Mohammad Hannon) less
