North Carolina Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Create Online Animal Abuser Registry

A pair of North Carolina lawmakers have introduced a bill that would create an online registry for convicted animal abusers.

The bill, dubbed the North Carolina Animal Abuser Registry Act, calls for all convicted animal abusers to be added to the state registry for two years from the date of their conviction. The bill also calls for those that are convicted twice to be banned from owning pets for five years.

If passed, the bill would go into effect in 2020.
