Maine Has Some of the Strongest Anti-Animal Abuse Laws

Maine has some of the strongest laws against animal abuse in the country. The Animal Legal Defense Fund said Maine has felony charges for animal cruelty, neglect and abandonment. But there is always room for improvements.

Maine was second on the list. Illinois. California, Michigan and Oregon were the top five states. While the Animal Legal Defense Fund said it’s tough for animal abusers to get off easy, experts say more can be done in this area. There might include stronger animal fighting provisions, more severe penalties for animal abusers who have prior domestic violence offenses and they’d like to see Maine adopt a statewide animal abuser registry. In the area of abuse of anyone or anything, I must agree with the Animal Legal Defense Fund, there is always more that can be done.
