INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) - A State Bill that hopes to help prevent animal abuse in Indiana has passed the House.

Senate Enrolled Act 474 would establish a mandatory condition of probation and parole that would not allow any person convicted of animal abuse to own, harbor, or train a 'companion animal.'

It passed the Indiana House by a unanimous vote.

State Senator Jon Ford, from Terre Haute, was an author on the bill.

The bill now moves to Governor Eric Holcomb.
