Animal Abuse Registry set to begin Monday

Tennessee is on track to become the 1st State in the Nation to offer an online animal abuse registry beginning Monday. The data base will list all those convicted of animal abuse crimes statewide. The registry will feature the offender’s picture and list his or her age and where the offender lives. The General Assembly passed the Animal Abuse Registry Law this summer. Knoxville Republican State Senator Richard Briggs says the model is based on the existing sex offender registry. He says the registry will hopefully provide a strong deterrent to animal abuse. The TBI is tasked with compiling the online site.
