Co-sponsor memo



MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 23, 2013 03:40 PM

From: Senator Patrick Browne

To: All Senate members

Subject: Cruelty to Animal Law Change


In the near future I plan to reintroduce Senate Bill 626 of the 2011-2012 legislative session, This legislation amends Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) to further provide for the offense of animal cruelty.

Specifically, the legislation would prohibit the use of live animals or fowl for target trap shoots and block shoots. A trap shoot involves immediately launching a moving target and a block shoot involves a tethered or stationary target. An individual who willfully organizes, operates or conducts one of these shoots commits a summary offense.

This legislation exempts all hunting or other activities authorized or permitted under Title 34 (Game Code) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes and under 58 Pa. Code CH. 147 (relating to special permits). This legislation will protect legitimate hunting activities in the Commonwealth but will also prevent the use of live animals or fowl for purely target practice activities.

This legislation was cosponsored last session by Tartaglione, Fontana, Kitchen, Boscola, Ferlo, Costa, Greenleaf, Hughes, Leach, Williams, Farnese, Alloway, Washington, Dinniman, Stack and Blake.
