A bill passed by an Assembly committee Monday would bar convicted animal abusers from owning a pet or working in a pet-related business in New Jersey.The measure is being called “Moose’s Law” to memorialize the chocolate labrador from Delran that died in a hot car in July of 2012 after being kidnapped by a woman who worked with animals for a living.
TRENTON — A bill inspired by the death of a Delran family’s dog again is moving through the New Jersey Legislature after Gov. Chris Christie declined to sign it at the end of the last legislative session.
The bill, known as Moose’s Law, after the family’s late Labrador retriever, was advanced by a 4-1 vote Monday afternoon by the Assembly’s Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.
