Glad to see that-I wish it would be a Constitutional Amedment though. The rest of the US should follow Kansas's lead here.

Absolutely! Animal cruelty should be considered a felony. And the psychological exam is a great idea. We know animal cruelty in a young person often foreshadows murder in adulthood.

It seems like a truly bi-partisan effort, too....which is very good.

Today the College Station courthouse acquitted a pet store that sells very young puppies from puppy mills

Every state needs to have a look at this.

This is good...a truly progressive step in the right direction. I just wish something like this would be enacted here. I'm currently trying to get SOME county agency to help me, my neighbor beats her dog and leaves him tied outside on a 4 foot leash in all kinds of weather, with no food, water, shade or shelter. I've made so many calls and no one has even come to speak to her about it. I'm getting so frustrated that I have promised myself the first time the dog is out there at nightfall he is GONE. Someone I work with does Yorkie rescue and she has given me numbers to call so she can come get the dog day or night. I know it's technically 'wrong' to take her dog, but he needs a better home. This woman next door to me never took the time to train him at all, and now she's so fed up with his behavior she's abusing him. I'm sure it has never crossed her mind once that it's her fault he's still not housebroken at almost a year old and he still chews things up all the time.

Believe me, there is nothing "wrong" with saving that poor dog's life! I'd do it in a heart beat.

Unless there's a law in place saying that it's illegal to sell puppies of a certain age, or puppies from mills, the courts can't really do anything about it. Too bad, though.
