Former prosecutor to lead state Humane Society

INDIANAPOLIS – A former Marion County deputy prosecuting attorney will become the Humane Society of the United States’ next state director for Indiana.

Erin Huang spent five years prosecuting animal cruelty cases and led seminars and outreach efforts about Indiana animal cruelty laws for shelter workers, law enforcement officials and attorneys.

Huang says she saw some of the most horrific instances of animal abuse and neglect during her time as a deputy prosecuting attorney and wants to help strengthen Indiana’s animal protection laws to include safeguards for all animals.

Huang will assist animal shelters and law enforcement agencies and lead the Humane Society’s animal welfare efforts throughout the state.
