Colorado Animal Rights Laws 2008 So Far: 3 Important Bills Recently Signed into Law

Some good news. Though again not all that stringent, it’s good to see issues such as Internet Hunting brought to the attention of the public. Hopefully this will spread to other states.

Here is what has been recently signed into law by Governor Ritter so far:

HB-1185 will require that all dogs & cats adopted from shelters and rescue organizations in Colorado be spayed or neutered.

HB-1200 Establishes criminal penalties for Internet hunting in Colorado. This applies not only to operating an Internet hunting facility (which was already made illegal by rule of the Colorado Wildlife Commission), but also to participating in a "hunt" from a computer located in Colorado.

HB-1304 Increases the penalties for killing a bald eagle.
