Public Saftey 6-01-07

Willfully killing a police animal or an assistance animal, such as a seeing-eye dog, could soon become a felony in North Carolina. House members unanimously approved a bill Senate Bill 34 Wednesday strengthening the penalty. The bill would also make killing a law enforcement animal or an assistance animal an aggravating circumstance for other criminal offenses. The proposal now goes to the governor to be signed into law.
