Legislation in the cowboy states


Arizona’s Jan Brewer: Unfailingly on the wrong side.

    BOISE,  PHOENIX–Idaho Governor Butch Otter in early April 2012 signed into law a bill creating a felony cruelty penalty for a third conviction within 15 years.  Only the Dakotas still lack felony cruelty penalties.
    Arizona Governor Jan Brewer two weeks later endorsed into law a bill by state representative Penny Judd which exempts dogs used in ranching and herding from anti-cruelty laws.  Judd introduced the bill after one of her constituents was prosecuted for leaving two dogs in a horse trailer for two days without food or water.  Three others were left tied without clean water.
