GOOD NEWS FROM JUNE ABOUT NEW YORK
1 year ago

Animal abuse offenders in Westchester County, N.Y. will soon have their cruel misdeeds made public thanks to a unanimous vote by the Westchester County Board of Legislators.

According to Tuesday's Westchester News, new legislation will not only mandate that convicted animal abusers be listed in a public database of animal abuse offenders, but those offenders will also be prohibited from owning, adopting or otherwise possessing (or exercising control over) any animals.

The county legislators made their unanimous decision based upon known ties between animal cruelty and domestic abuse, citing testimony from Roxanne Beecher, Co-Chair of the Animal Law Committee of the Westchester County Bar Association, who stated that:

 

71% of abused or battered women report that their abuser has hurt or killed animals, 32% of battered women with children report that their children have hurt or killed animals, and 25-48% of battered women report delaying leaving their abuser for fear of their animal being abused.

Beecher added:

that 40% of battered women report that they are forced to perform sexual acts with animals, 48% of rapists have committed acts of animal cruelty as adolescents, 30% of child molesters have committed acts of animal abuse, and 15% of active rapists also rape animals.

Supporters of the new legislation are hopeful that the public registry will help protect not only animals, but children. The registry should help to ensure that children in foster care are not placed into homes with known animal abusers.

The following states currently have an animal abusers registry: California, District of Columbia, Louisiana, Maine, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia. Proposed animal abuse registry legislation is in place in many other states as well, and the FBI is pushing for a federal bill.

“The Board of Legislators spent over a year working on this bill, and I’m pleased that it received full support from my colleagues,” said Ryan. “Before moving this bill forward, we made sure that there would be little cost to the taxpayers associated with making this registry available to the public on the County website.”

Commissioner of the Department of Social Services Kevin McGuire remarked in testimony to the BOL Legislation Committee that a public animal abuse registry would help prevent child abuse and also help make sure children are not placed with animal abusers.

“This opportunity to make Westchester a safer place for our residents was entirely deserving of our careful consideration and strong action,” concluded Ryan.
