ONE – Nevada’s New Felony Animal Cruelty Law Goes into Effect Today
Cooney’s Law establishes animal cruelty as a felony in the state of Nevada. It’s great to see another state make this move. Hopefully, punishing those who commit acts of torture against innocent beings will discourage others from doing so.
Global Animal’s report on the news includes a KTNV article that notes – “The bill was named after a northern Nevada shelter dog who was brutally tortured with a box cutter and killed by his owner- A crime that only came with a misdemeanor charge.”
And Global Animal calls it “animal cruelty syndrome.”
