Jefferson City, Missouri — The judge was able to issue a lifelong detention order for pets under a bill passed by the Missouri Parliament on Monday.

Currently, protection orders are limited to a maximum of one year. The victim must then return to court to secure the extension.

under InvoiceSenate-approved 31-0 judges have the option of granting detention orders for longer periods of time, depending on potential threats. Orders can be programmed to be updated automatically.

Those who have restraint orders against them will have to prove that they have been rehabilitated and are no longer a threat in order for the protection orders to be lifted early.

This measure also allows for protection orders to protect pets.

Republican bill sponsor Elaine Gannon said the provision would be a tool for those who could threaten someone’s pet as a way to emotionally hurt their owners.

The bill is currently heading to Republican Governor Mike Parson’s desk.
