Thank you Rep. Lou Kafka for filing legislation in response to the horrors suffered by Puppy Doe.
House Docket # 3883 An Act Relating to Animal Cruelty would increase the penalties for certain type of animal abuse. Specifically, the act increases the penalties for the “worst” type of animal cruelty — such as torturing or mutilating and increases the fines from $2,500 to $25,000 and from a maximum of 5 years in prison to a maximum of 10 years.
If you live in Sharon, Rep. Kafka is your state representative. Call your senator on Beacon Hill and ask him of her to sponsor the bill. Find out who your State Rep and Senator are here: http://www.wheredoivotema
