Gov. to sign bill to protect animals - VIDEOS
The measure being signed Monday 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.
Candlelight Vigil Planned for Buddy the Dog
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo (KKCO) -- A candlelight vigil has been planned for Buddy the dog, just days before his alleged killer is expected to enter a guilty plea.
The vigil will take place on Tuesday, April 27th in front of the Buddy memorial at the Roice-Hurst Humane Society. Organizers say a short memorial ceremony will start at around 7:30pm.
Earlier this year, the German Shepard - Blue Heeler mix was stolen from his owners, then dragged to death on the Colorado National Monument.
Steven Romero -- the man arrested for Buddy's death -- had intially pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated animal cruelty. However, the U.S. Attorney's office says he will change that plea when he appears in a federal court in Denver on April 29.
