Animal abuse "Windchill's Law" introduced again at state legislature

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Legislation called “Windchill’s Law” would make animal neglect a more serious crime in Wisconsin.

The legislation is named after a colt, named Windchill, was found starving and frozen on the ground in northern Wisconsin in 2006.

That colt eventually died and it was hard to prosecute the owner under existing state law.

The new version passed the Assembly last session, but it wasn’t taken up by the Wisconsin Senate.

A revision to its language gives the bipartisan bill a better chance to make it through.
