Law Boosts Fines For Animal Abuse

Mistreating or abusing an animal now comes with a hefty fine.  Governor Quinn signed a law that ups the fines from 200-to-500-bucks the first time someone is busted for hurting a pet.  A second offense comes with one-thousand-dollar fine and anyone busted three times will be out 25-hundred-bucks.  The idea is to crack down on puppy mills, which are often considered inhumane dog breeding facilities.  Several third grade students from Arlington Heights pushed for the law.
