    I wouldn't have given away all that free legal advice had I remembered that Fairfax would come along and make us all stupider for having engaged in this discussion.

    Great. Another harassment tool for wacky neighbor feuds. My husband used to be on my town's conservation commission. Man, you would not believe how childish two adults can be when it comes to arguments over yard maintenance. (And how annoying it can be to field the Saturday morning calls from wacky neighbor A, who doesn't like where wacky neighbor B has positioned his leaf pile.) Lovely when wacky neighbor B can now sue wacky neighbor A for using an invisible fence.

    That's pretty much the way I look at it too.

    I think....

    Animal cruelty complaints are a job for third party unprejudiced state authorities to investigate and initiate any action when appropriate.

    Providing the common citizen with power of investigation, and capacity to initiate private action, creates a probability for prejudiced abuse of that power for objectives unrelated to the prevention of animal cruelty.

    I'd like to hear an example of how the enactment of this bill may protect an animal, where the currently established animal protection laws cannot.

    Yeah, I wouldn't read too much into this bill honestly. This bill was most likely drafted by a loyal constituant who's legislator obligingly filed it. That's how stuff works, and these types of bills don't go anywhere.

    Email your reps, but this bills chance of being passed is about as good as a Republican presidential candidate carrying the state.
