New Animal Cruelty Bill in Tennessee

Both houses of Tennessee's legislature have passed a bill that would give harsher penalties to animal abusers. Under the new law, any person who violates a court order in connection with an animal cruelty charge would be convicted of a misdemeanor. Currently, there are no laws to go after an abuser who does not follow a court order.

A second animal cruelty conviction, under the new bill, will be a felony and will land the abuser in prison for 1-6 years.
