The Fraternal Order of Police is supporting the Humane Society of the United States reward program to aid in stopping puppy mills. The Humane Society of the United States is offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of a puppy mill operator for illegal animal cruelty.
The verdict has been upheld in the case of the shooting of Brandi, a chocolate lab, by police officers. Back in April the jury had awarded $620,000 to the Jenkins family, $20,000 for veterinary bills and $600,000 for mental anguish, pain and suffering. The judge did reduce the veterinary bills award to $7,500 due to the fact Maryland law caps damages at that amount.
