Banning the use of wild and exotic animals in circuses - the first in
the country (A1923).
Banning dog fighting in trunks of cars (S975).
Making it easier for law enforcement officers to
rescue animals in danger (S2674).
Prohibiting courts from declaring a
dog "dangerous" if the dog is defending their owner.
leasing of dogs and cats - a rent-to-own scheme that meant people paid more
for their animals in the long run and could lose their pets if they could
not keep up the inflated payments. (A4552).
possession of animal fighting paraphernalia as a third degree crime (S3146).
His Attorney General has limited the use of dogs in law enforcement.
Banning the sale and possession
of shark fins (S2905).
Through Executive Order (E.O.) 34, the
Governor banned bear hunting on state lands.
And this year, Phil Murphy halted the bear hunt entirely.
