A bill introduced by two Ohio House members from Mahoning County would make animal abuse by its custodian or caregiver a felony.
The proposed law change stems from an incident that occurred in Youngstown in October 2008, said state Reps. Ronald V. Gerberry of Austintown, D-59th, and Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, the bill’s sponsors.
Steve Croley, 38, of Lowellville, operated High Caliber K-9 on Coitsville-Hubbard Road in Youngstown, where seven dead and 12 starving dogs were found.
