KY Animal Torture Law

A Kentucky lawmaker has filed legislation to make animal torture a felony under Kentucky law, inspired by a Louisville dog’s survival story.House Bill 57, introduced by Rep. Chris Freeland, would amend the current animal torture law (KRS 525.135) and upgrade the punishment for crimes involving cats and dogs to a Class D felony. It would also “add specific acts to the definition of torture.”
