Animal rights groups have praised Illinois’ laws against animal abusers, with the Animal League Defense Fund ranking the state in 2014 as having the toughest laws against abuse. The Animal Welfare Institute, Animal Legal Defense Fund, and Best Friends Animal Society all supported House Bill 3231.
"Exposing children to the violent mistreatment of animals cannot be tolerated and strengthening our laws is one way for us to protect them.” Kifowit said. “This law is a step towards ensuring all of our four-legged family members are properly cared for.”
