On animal cruelty laws in light of two recent cases.

It could have been different, if in April 2008 MPs had not voted to defer implementation of modernizing Criminal Code provisions on animal cruelty in Canada that date back to 1892.

Bill S-203, a private member’s bill that originated in the Senate, would have increased jail time and fines for animal cruelty offenders, but MPs avoided making changes that would broaden the scope of the law.
