NARN has filed a lawsuit against the State of Washington and King County, asking the court to declare certain exemptions and exclusions to Washington’s animal cruelty laws unconstitutional. These exemptions are so poorly defined and vague as to invite tremendous acts of animal exploitation to go unpunished. They also invite such a complete delegation of legislative power as to allow the foxes to guard the proverbial henhouse. These exemptions result in unjustifiable and inconsistent protections for animals by permitting some of the most undisputedly heinous and cruel injuries to be inflicted daily on large numbers.
