Animal Abuse Registry Put On Hold, Again


Debate Surrounds Business Information Of Abuse Sites

UTICA–Oneida County has tabled a local law that would create a database of names of those convicted of animal abuse.

The vote on the local law was postponed for two months in a row.

The registry would include names, addresses and the charges of those convicted of abuse stemming from inside homes all the way to on the farm.

Debate on the matter surrounds concerns whether business names would be listed on the register, where the abuse occurred.

There is a chance that the local law could be taken up next month, but there is no guarantee.
