FRANKFORT, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky ranks last in the nation when it comes to effective animal abuse laws.
Wednesday, Kentucky Citizens Against Animal Abuse took a message to the state capitol, arguing that strengthening laws against animal abuse will help save the lives of people.
"Our laws are not strong enough. We need separate laws for the pets because if we can address the animal abusers then we can probably protect the women, children and very vulnerable adults," said Dee Robinson, of Kentucky Citizens Against Animal Abuse.
Statistics show 71 percent of animal abusers go on to abuse people.
Robinson says society has changed since Kentucky's laws on abuse were written in the 70s and 80s.
