Idaho Cattle Association introduces an animal cruelty bill?

No, that isn’t a typo. I think I am still confused about how Idaho works. I do know that Idahoans love their cattle, and maybe they’re all just big animal lovers underneath. Maybe not.

The cattle group is supporting legislation that would make a third animal-cruelty conviction a felony rather than just a misdemeanor. The animal welfare group Stop Torturing Our Pets joins the Idaho Cattle Association in urging lawmakers to pass this.

According to an AP article:
“Their initiative would define animal torture, make it a felony on first offense, and levy escalating punishments for cruelty that would become a felony by the third offense.”

There’s hope for you yet, Idaho!

Four Paws Adoption Center

About a month ago, I went to Four Paws in Rexburg, Idaho to get my very own cat. This place is incredible. I think they have somewhere between 80 and 100 cats, and that isn’t counting all the kittens. When you walk in, cats jump at you from all sides– from shelves, chairs, tables, and the floor. Every cat wants a little piece of your attention. I have never seen more cats in my life. It’s incredible. I’m grateful that I’m not allergic. They are 100% volunteer-run, which means they can always use an extra pair of hands.

Four Paws is located at 114 South 4th West. See their website here
