Gov. to sign bill protecting animals

DENVER — Gov. Bill Ritter is signing a measure that will provide animals and pets protection from domestic abusers.

The measure being signed today would allow judges to order suspected domestic abusers in Colorado to stay away from family pets and livestock.

Democratic Sen. Linda Newell says domestic abusers can harm or threaten to harm pets as well livestock to intimidate their victims. Advocates say some are afraid to leave abusive homes out of fear for the animals they may have to leave behind.
