It's Back....The bill to weaken cruelty protection for farm animals is back in the Arizona Legislature and we need your help to stop it! The bill is an amended version of the measure that failed last session.
HB 2429, livestock; poultry; animal cruelty; violation (Barton), contains some beneficial language on hoarding, but would do far more harm than good for animals. The bill removes farm animals (including horses) from Arizona's animal cruelty code and places them in a new, weaker section under the agriculture code, and removes felony penalties for even the most egregious acts of animal cruelty.
