Gov. signs bill protecting pet animals

Gov signs, Important of animals and pets protection from perpetrators of domestic violence.

The measure signed will allow judges to order suspected domestic abusers in Colorado to stay away from family pets and livestock.

Domestic abusers can harm or threaten to harm pets to intimidate their victims. Advocates say some victims of domestic wildness are afraid to leave abusive homes out of fear for the animals they may have to leave behind.
