Bill To Increase Penalties For Those Who Injure, Kill Police K-9s

A bill proposal would see an increase in penalties for those who kill police K-9s.

The Senate Criminal Justice Committee unanimously approved the bill. It would make the killing of a police dog a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years behind bars.

Increased penalties would also apply to anyone who seriously injures a police horse, or for the death or injury of dogs or horses used by fire departments.
