In New York, ASPCA Gives Up Enforcing Animal Cruelty Laws

For 147 years, it has been responsible for the enforcement of animal cruelty laws in New York City. But that ends now. With the coming of the new year, the ASPCA laid off the last 17 members of its law enforcement unit, turning those duties over to the New York Police Department.
