The Good News: North Carolina House Bill 2098, which outlaws hog-dog rodeos and requires individuals charged with animal cruelty to pay for the care of their animals, has passed the House and Senate with no problem and is ready for Governor Michael Easley to sign into law.
The Bad News: Opponents have called, faxed and e-mailed the governor so much that HB 2098 is up for a veto discussion.
How You Can Help: Please call Governor Easley's office toll-free at 1-800-662-7952 and tell the receptionist the phone that you "SUPPORT HB 2098 and want Governor Easley to sign it into law."
I just called and it literally took 15 seconds. This is something you can do right now to help the animals.
