According to a news story, “Governor Rick Snyder has signed legislation that would increase penalties for people associated with animal fighting and animal cruelty crimes.
“‘This legislation provides law enforcement the tools they need to put a stop to animal fighting,’ Snyder said.
“The bill allows for the seizure of homes and cars in cases involving animal fighting where the property either directly or materially contributed to the crime.”
Take Action: Michigan residents, send a note of thanks to your governor and your legislators for protecting animals in your state. Residents of other states, if your statutes don’t include strong penalties for animal fighting and cruelty crimes, contact your legislators and urge them to follow Michigan’s lead.
The Honorable Rick Snyder
