The proposed bill would ban abusers from owning a pet!

Lawmakers are trying to make life difficult for animal abusers.

After a proposed law that would declare cruelty to animals a federal felony

in Florida and a Pennsylvania law that authorizes felonies to dog owners

who leave their pets outside in extreme weather conditions for more than

30 minutes, it could be Colorado’s turn to introduce a law that would

definitely state made more acceptable to animals.

Denver lawmaker Representative Alex Valdez introduced HB19-1092, a bill that if approved :

+would give judges the ability to ban people convicted of misdemeanor animal abuse from taking care or

+owning an animal of any kind for a period of 5 to 10 years.

In addition to that:

felons would be charged a minimum $500 fine!

Animal lovers from across the U.S. praise this proposal,

and many hope similar measures to counter animal

cruelty will be taken by more states across the nation!
