Newspaper series examines PA cruelty laws


Pennsylvania's animal cruelty laws are the focus of a three-part series in the York Dispatch newspaper this week.

The multi-media series, by crime and courts reporter Liz Evans, began yesterday with a look at the evolving nature of companion animals in society, an overview of cruelty laws and the impact of puppy mills and the state's efforts to curb them. 

Today's article examines where Pennsylvania stands nationally when it comes to laws protecting animals and prosecuting abusers. Stay tuned Friday for a look at why a number of states and animal welfare organizations are changing the language to reflect the new status of animals in our culture.
