Killing With Kindness
The state House, last week, approved legislation that would limit the ways in which animals can be euthanized and increase the fine for violating the rules from $250 to between $500 and $1,000, said State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129)
He said the House also last week approved House Bill 2409, which provides a mechanism for animal care organizations to seek compensation for care provided to an animal that was seized due to animal cruelty charges. This would allow the caregivers to seek compensation from the owner of the animal or the defendant in the animal cruelty case.
Cox said he voted for all the bills.
