U.S. Animal Protection Laws, 2016 Rankings

Wyoming ranks a dismal 48th in Animal Protection laws in the U.S. ahead of only Iowa and Kentucky. There are a couple of bills circulating through the Wyoming Senate and House that we are watching right now that may help to slightly strengthen the laws but overall, animals aren’t afforded much protection in this state.
