   510 ILCS 5/16.5 new                                                         

        Amends the Animal Control Act.  Provides that a person commits  a      
   Class  4  felony if that person negligently, recklessly, knowingly, or      
   intentionally allows a dog or other animal to cross the property  line      
   of  the  premises where the dog or other animal is being kept, if that      
   dog  or  other  animal,  unprovoked,   causes   great   bodily   harm,      
   disfigurement,  disability,  or  death  to another person, and if that      
   other person was in a place where he or she may lawfully be. It  is  a      
   rebuttable presumption that the dog or other animal was unprovoked.         
          JUDICIAL NOTE (Administrative Office of Illinois Courts)             
          There may be an increase in judicial workloads due to HB 3984;       
          however, the bill would not increase the number of judges            
          needed in the State.                                                 
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                              
          The impact on the Department is expect to be minimal. Each           
          person sentenced to prison for a Class 4 felony would serve          
          an average of six months at a cost of $10,319 and would require      
          the construction of one additional prison bed at the cost of         
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
