Arizona bill would aid animals in suspected cruelty
A new bill in the Arizona State Legislature would allow law enforcement officials to enter properties to seize an animal if there is probably cause to believe that the animal is suffering from cruelty or abandonment.
The bill would also require that those arrested for animal cruelty or fighting, after an appropriate hearing, must post a bond to provide for the cost of caring for seized animals.
The bill was discussed on the Arizona House floor Feb. 21, 2012. Read the bill summary.
