Boise city councilman hopes to update the city's codes on animal cruelty
Efforts are underway to update Boise's animal cruelty laws, which would allow citizens to break car windows to get animals out of hot cars and effectively ban circuses that include exotic animals. Boise City Councilman TJ Thomson says the city's code surrounding animal abuse hasn't been updated in decades and needs to be updated.
