CITADEL Top 40 KZMG (MAGIG 93.1)/BOISE morning host DAN TOOKER took up the cause of a 9 month old dog that had to be euthanized because of abuse it had suffered, and wants to make sure that penalties for crimes like this are more severe.
IDAHO is one of only 6 states where animal cruelty is only a misdemeanor, so TOOKER organized a rally at an off leash dog park last weekend to get the law changed. Over 500 people and their dogs came out to support the cause, many of whom were among the over 2,000 who signed the online petition. DAN's next step will be to work closely with state legislatures to get the law changed this year.
