1997 – Preventing Animals From Falling and Jumping from Pick-up Trucks

This law requires that an animal be safely cross-tethered or otherwise secured in an open vehicle, such as a pick-up truck or jeep, so that the animal does not jump or fall.  More than 700 dogs were being injured or killed each year in Massachusetts in this manner prior to this bill’s passage.
