New York Bill Would Impose New Guidelines on the Disposition of Confiscated Farmed Animals

New York Assembly Bill 1449 would amend existing laws relating to individuals who have been convicted of crimes against farmed animals by preventing the “convicted person or any person dwelling in the same household who conspired, aided, or abetted in the unlawful act which was the basis of the conviction, or who knew or should have known of the unlawful act” from being compensated or reimbursed for the value or sale of any confiscated farmed animals that were the basis of the conviction. The bill has been referred to the Assembly Committee on Agriculture.
