In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would authorize a court, upon finding a person guilty of abusing an animal or otherwise violating the State animal cruelty laws, to issue an animal protection order against the person adjudged guilty of the abuse or other violation. The animal protection order would require the person to refrain from interacting with an animal permanently or for a period of time specified by the court. The animal protection order may apply to a specific animal with which the adjudged person has contact, or to any other animal, as determined to be appropriate by the court. The bill would also provide that whenever a person knowingly violates the conditions of an animal protection order and, as a result, causes injury to the animal that is the subject of the animal protection order, the person would be guilty of a disorderly persons offense.
