It’s finding pit bulls like Angel stuck in inches of feces and urine that get animal welfare groups and investigators riled up about dog tethering.
House Bill 2783 would create an offense for unlawful tethering, which could be punishable by a $1,000 maximum fine.
If tethering results in serious injury or death to the animal, the owner would face first degree animal neglect charges.
In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
