Attorney-General Shirley Bond says authorities are taking extraordinary measures to keep an eye on a high-risk violent offender recently released from jail.
Bond says privacy law limits what she can say about the case of 23-year-old Kayla Bourque, but the government is taking this case seriously.
"I can tell you that I have been assured that there will be intensive monitoring and as you can imagine that's going to be required when you have 46 conditions and many of them involve probation officers and looking at for example even the kinds of relationships, approval of the kind of people that she can have contact with."
Bond says it is a very sad circumstance to see a person of this age under such serious restrictions.
Bourque was convicted of killing animals and causing unnecessary pain and suffering to animals in 2009, and has expressed interest in harming other people.
