Oneida County District Attorney, Scott McNamara was one of three who spoke to the Senate's Standing Committee on Agriculture, explaining how difficult it is to prosecute animal cases, because of the current laws.
Mr. McNamara says he hopes this gives the committee an idea of what he thinks would make animal cases easier to prosecute.
"Right now the way the law is written and where it isi n the law is not beneficial to what we do, and it's very difficult for what we do and difficult for us to prove these cases," said McNamara.
Mr. McNamara says he hopes there will be laws passed with some teeth for actual punishment.
And although only a few spoke Wednesday afternoon, the community was still able to submit written testimony.
