Wyoming Senate moves forward on animal-cruelty bill

The Wyoming State Senate has given preliminary approval to a bill that would classify hoarding and operating puppy mills as animal cruelty. The vote was 16-10 last week to approve the measure, as reported by Trib.com.

In what seems to be a positive move, the definition of a puppy mill or hoarders will be based on the “conditions of the animals and their surroundings” – as opposed to straight numbers.

The story also notes an animal protection account would be established to assist counties in covering the costs of animal welfare cases.

Bravo to the Wyoming Senate – or at least to the 16 members who voted to advance this bill. We’ve seen a couple of cases of late where a few lawmakers in Missouri and Virginia are trying to gut important animal-welfare laws. It’s great to see examples where others are trying to advance efforts to protect animals from cruelty.
