Animal cruelty complaints to go through Crimestoppers hotline

From DNA Info:

The city has now opened up its anonymous Crime Stoppers hotline to accept animal cruelty complaints from across the five boroughs, officials said.

The ASPCA announced a partnership Wednesday with the NYPD's Crime Stoppers program, which will now have its operators take down information about animal cruelty in the city the same way they do for murders, shootings, rapes and other major crimes.

Tipsters can call the hotline and will also be eligible for an award of up to $2,500 for tips that lead to an arrest and indictment for animal cruelty, the ASPCA said.

Previously, tipsters could report possible cruelty by calling 311 or 911.

Undermanned and underfunded. Maybe one of our genius councilpersons can sponsor a bill requiring all domesticated animalin the city be say/ neutered. If you wannt to breed,you pay for a spcial license and can be checked anytime. Breed without a license,fine and jail time!

Good, I'd rather cops investigate animal cruelty than one more Mexican on a bike slapping some girls ass in corona, and they put out an apb on every one of those.
