Indiana Animal Cruelty Bill Goes Into Effect

Lafayette, IN:  WLFI reports that State Senator Ron Alting’s animal cruelty bill was to be signed by Governor Eric Holcomb and officially go into law on July 1. Previously, anyone convicted of animal cruelty could go straight back to a shelter or pet store and get another cat or dog as soon as they got out of jail. But Alting’s bill takes away the privilege of domestic pet ownership from convicted felons while they are on probation or parole.
