Quick Kill Bill Has Been Re-Introduced



This bill has been re-introduced and referred to the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resource Committee - As of this date, members of the Committee have not been selected. Assemblyman Craig Coughlin of 569 Rahway Ave. in Woodbridge introduced the bill.

This is a horrible bill. A veterinarian may feel that the cost of care is `too expensive' when an owner may be willing to pay. The animal may be very old, or weak, and a vet could make an error in judgement.

What if the animal bit someone and it is not discovered until 2 days later? Will they have to undergo rabies inoculations? Who pays?
