April 14, 1998

Decatur, AL had an incident about a month ago where a jail inmate working at the animal shelter let a caged dog chew the leg off a cat held with a capture noose. He was tried and found guilty on 4/9 and sentenced to the maximum allowed by law, 180 days (it's currently a Class B misdemeanor: 6mos/$500).

There is legislation pending in the Alabama Legislature which would make this a Class C Felony (10yrs/$5000). The regular legislative session only has about another two weeks to go.
