Cook receives humane society award

Indiana state representative Tony Cook has received the Humane Legislator Award from the Humane Society of the United States.

Cook was recognized for authoring a law providing some protections for people who use force to enter a vehicle to save a distressed pet.  If Hoosiers see an animal in distress, they should first notify police and use only reasonable force to get the animal out.

Cook was presented with the award on April 16th at the Indiana Statehouse.
