Susie’s Law to take effect Wednesday

Susie’s Law will officially be the law of the land in North Carolina beginning Wednesday (Dec. 1).

In severe cases, even first convictions for animal cruelty can now lead to jail time under Susie’s Law, which was named for dog in Greensboro, NC that was found badly burned and beaten. Susie’s attacker got only probation for the cruel and vicious attack.

“That kind of behavior demonstrates a wanton disregard for life,” said Rep. Pricey Harrison, a Greensboro Democrat who helped craft the bill. The possibility of jail time may deter some people from committing such crimes, she said.

This is an important step in highlighting a need for better laws and harsher penalties in cases of animal cruelty. Too often abusers of kids and animals have walked away with nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

  1. Press Release
    Now a person can experience the many aspects and workings of a puppy mill almost as if they were standing amidst the cages, listening to the barks. There’s a terrific new and involved piece of fiction on the market entitled “A Cold Breed.” It focuses on the vivid discovery, investigation, and shutdown of a realistic puppy mill. The storyline is fresh; the characters are rich; the gamut of emotions become real. A portion of every purchase is donated to the ASPCA. Swing by the author’s site for good information at caseyoryan.com or stop into the author’s blog at caseyoryan.blogspot.com. Thank You for your consideration.
