Backlash grows against Brown over animal shelter law

There's a growing backlash against Gov. Jerry Brown's proposal to repeal an animal shelter law embraced by most pet owners.

The governor wants to scrap a regulation requiring shelters to wait at least six days before euthanizing cats and dogs.

It would save the state the $23 million it spends to compensate no kill shelters.

Shelters could continue the six-day waiting period, they just won't be reimbursed by the state anymore.
