Progress!

A bit off topic here, but this means a lot to the fight to end animal cruelty.

The state of Arkansas has signed into law a bill making cruelty to a horse, dog, or cat a Federal offense. Each count will be punishable by up to 6 years in prison and $5000 in fines.

Finally, one of the more "good ol' boy system" states steps up and takes a stand.

I live in this state (I am not from here, I moved here for work) and am so relieved to see this actually happen. I cannot stand reporting a blatant case of neglect or cruelty and seeing it go unchecked.
