Nitro's law could die on senate floor

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A proposed law to increase the penalty for animal cruelty could die on the state senate floor this week.

Ohio House Bill 108, or Nitro's Law, was introduced in 2009.

The bill would allow prosecutors to charge kennel owners, managers and workers with a fifth degree felony for the abuse or starvation of animals in their care.

The law currently only allows for misdemeanor charges.

Representative Ron Gerberry said there is a small chance the senate will vote on it by the end of the week.
