So What Are The Animal Cruelty Laws Anyway

I was always wondering what the punishment was for animal cruelty in different states. Well there are four states that don’t even recognize animal cruelty as a felony and they are Idaho, Mississippi, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Mississippi has the least amount of jail time of six months while Alabama and Louisiana having the maximum time of ten years for those who are convicted. Colorado has the highest fines of five hundred thousand dollars while Tennessee has no fines.

While only fourteen states can ban you from owning another animal and seven states given personal protection order.
These statutes are as of November second two thousand and ten.
