Dog killings inspire fight for felony animal abuse laws

The Senate already approved “Kirby and Quigley’s Law,” which was proposed after two dogs were shot in the Town of Florida, Montgomery County, during what appears to be a robbery. Now leaders are urging the Assembly to do the same. The law would make it a felony punishable by two years in prison and a $5,000 fine if animals are killed or injured during the commission of another crime.
