HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Bills to restrict tethering of dogs and other animal protection measures are moving forward in the Pennsylvania Legislature.

The state Senate on Wednesday voted for a bill that would prevent people from tethering their dogs in severe weather or when it would deprive them of food, water and shelter.

They’re also approving bills to prevent serious Dog Law violators from running kennels with another family member’s name, to impose more serious penalties on people who harm animals in the context of domestic violence and to protect horses from cruelty.

The proposals are now in front of the state House for its consideration.
