The ASPCA has released its list of best new state laws enacted in 2012.
The list includes a California ban on the use of dogs to chase down bears and bobcats, a felony animal-cruelty law in Idaho, new animal welfare laws in Massachusetts, banning horse slaughter in New Jersey and puppy mill and exotic animal regulations in Ohio. And in Tennessee, extreme acts of cruelty to farm animals can now be prosecuted as felonies.

And the ASPCA also listed its selections as the top animal stories of 2012.

It’s great to post good news. I’m trying to make sure I post more in the way of positives in 2013.
