POSSUM KINGDOM (KFDX/KJTL) — The Texas Humane Legislation Network and the Young County Humane Society hosted a session where the new laws surrounding animal cruelty were explained.

“We call them road shows to try to tell the citizens about the laws that passed, the future bills that are being brought in the capitol that relate to animals and how they can get political for animals,” Shelby Bobosky, Executive Director of THLN said.

Shelby’s group is designed to better inform community members about what the state is doing to protect animals.

“There’s so much confusion surrounding our laws in the state of Texas that deal with the animals,” Bobosky said. “And so by having these meetings, it allows citizens to just ask any question that’s on their mind or anything that’s happened with respect to animals in their lives.”

With these meetings, the group teaches the community the best measures for treating animals with care.

In honor of all the work he has done to ensure pets are not treated cruelly, Olney Chief of Police Dan Birbeck was presented with an award.
