NATCHEZ, Miss. — The city of Natchez held a town hall meeting to get input on animal cruelty legislation. 

City Council Chambers were filled with concerned residents. State senator Bob Dearing spoke regarding legislation that will be presented to lawmakers next year.

Under new legislation individuals convicted of dog fighting would face up to 25 years behind bars and could face a $1,000 fine per dog.

Officials and authorities say the state needs tougher animal cruelty laws.
