CA Animal Protection Bills

Governor Schwarzenegger signs four animal-rights measures into law and vetoes three.

Earlier this week, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed four animal-rights measures passed this session by the California State Legislature and vetoed three. Seven of the 700 measures passed this session were related to animal protection and involved controversial issues such as the tail docking of dairy cows and harsher punishments for dog fighting. While the ban on tail docking was signed through, three of the measures, including one to clean-up puppy mills, were vetoed. Governor Schwarzenegger, who was an outspoken opponent of Proposition 2 last fall, defended his decision to veto limitations on puppy mill on the grounds that it could criminalize pet shops and kennels.
