Felony Cruelty in Nevada

A new bill in the Nevada legislature calls for felony charges for animal cruelty.

Introduced earlier this month, a new bill in the Nevada state legislature seeks to make animal cruelty a felony offense. Nevada is currently one of the few states left that does not consider animal cruelty a felony on the first offense; the new bill would charge first offenders with either a class C or D felony. Additionally, the bill calls for misdemeanor charges to be placed on anyone who removes a dog or cat from its mother before the animal is eight weeks old. The bill has been nicknamed “Cooney’s Law,” after a rescue dog who was tortured to death with a box cutter.
