Bernalillo County has instituted laws that makes it unlawful to chain (tether) dogs outside, among other laws that protect the well being of animals, while the state hasn't. Not only does this cause confusion, its simply wrong that we arent protecting our animals from abuse in New Mexico. The fact that its ok to have sex with an animal in New Mexico speaks for itself. New Mexico Ranks in the bottom again for allowing animal abuse. http://aldf.org/staterankings/
Bernalillo took action and implemented changes in August of 2014.
Bernalillo law now states the following:
