goodnews_movement Finn's Law was passed into law last week increasing the maximum sentence for animal cruelty from 6 months to 5 years of jail time in England and Wales. This bill had already been in effect in Scotland and
Northern Ireland and will go into effect later this year in England / Wales. Additionally, offenders can also be given an unlimited fine under the new law, which will come into effect across England and Wales on June 29 this year. Finn's Law is named after a German Shepard police dog who saved its owner, police officer Dave Wardell's life, by protecting him from a knife-wielding attacker.
In the US, maximum sentencing for animal cruelty is up to 7 years. The hope with the bill is to deter animal abusers. finn
