Common Council Set To Vote On Animal Cruelty Bill Next Week

A law punishing dog owners for leaving their pets out in extreme weather conditions is getting a renewed push from the Syracuse Common Council.   "Adrian's Law" was turned down by the Onondaga County Legislature in April due to concerns over enforcement.  The legislation has owners facing up to 15 days in jail and a fine if it can be proven they left their animal in severe heat or cold.  It would be up to animal control or police to determine that. The council is set to vote next week.
