Animal cruelty
On the heels of a number of local animal abuse cases, Tennessee lawmakers are working on a plan to give anyone who is caught abusing animals more than once mandatory hard time. Under the Tennessee PAWS Act, an individual who is caught for a second time being especially cruel to animals or it's their first time, but there were five or more animals involved, will have to spend 180 days in jail. Currently those crimes do not carry a mandatory minimum sentence. The bill would also require suspects in animal cruelty cases to pay shelters or rescues caring for those animals includingr medical expenses and boarding costs.
