Colorado Bill Would Impose Triple Damages on Animal Rights/Environmental Terrorists

The Colorado state legislature is currently considering a bill that would allow judges to impose civil awards up to three times the cost of actual damage committed by animal rights and environmental terrorists.

Colorado state Sen. Mark Hillman introduced the bill citing a number of prominent attacks on farms and animal facilities. Hillman told the Rocky Mountai News,

There has been an alarming increase across the nation in the number of incidents that I call agri-terrorism, but might also fit under eco-terrorism.

The bill made it through the state senate’s agricultural committe in January.
