LAS CRUCES - State Attorney General Gary King announced a new hot line
Tuesday for residents to report animal fighting or instances of
extreme cruelty to animals.
The toll-free, 24-hour hot line is (888) 260-2178.
"People who abuse animals in New Mexico will be prosecuted," King said
in a news release. "This new hot line gives the public and law
enforcement another tool as we work together to ensure compliance with
animal protection laws."
The phone number is a measure originated from the Animal Cruelty
Taskforce, a group King put together in June to improve the
prosecution rate of animal-related crimes.
