Animal abuse is now a crime after Trump has signed a bipartisan bill
The bipartisan bill, which caused animal abuse passed by Parliament, was signed by the President on Monday.
The Animal Abuse and Torture Prevention Act (PACT) is a federal prohibition of animal abuse that prevents intentional bruising, death, suffocation, coughing or other acts of violence that cause serious bodily harm to animals. The convicted are punished with federal crimes, fines and imprisonment of up to seven years.
“Most people are aware that there is no federal animal abuse law in the US,” Animal Health Foundation Environment Director in Holy Ghan said in a October press release.
This bill was issued by D-Fla in January to criminalize animal abuse that is not related to the Banning of Animal Wrecking Videos Act. Ted Deutch and R-Fla. First submitted by legislator Vern Buchanan. We signed the law in 2010.
We plan to close a gap in the 2010 law that only penalizes the unauthorized use of video. According to sources, the law was spurred on by “crash” videos and small creatures were often trampled on in women’s shoes.
