Proposed Conn bill would allow some animals representatives in court

Some Connecticut lawmakers are proposing a measure to allow animal advocates to act on behalf of an animal in court.  At the moment the legislation seems to be limited to Department of Ag vets, but it includes both civil and criminal proceedings, including animal cruelty cases, so at least that's a start.
