Proposed regulation might make animal cruelty in the U.S.

Proposed regulation might make animal cruelty in the U.S.

Two members of the U.S. House of Representatives re-introduced a bill last week that
would make acts of animal cruelty a felony in the country. A person convicted of the crime could face a fine or up to seven years in prison, or both. 

The bill, known as the animal cruelty and torture (Treaty) Act, was co-sponsored by Democrat Ted Deutsch and Republican Vail Buchanan. PACT makes it a crime to”smash, burn, drown, asphyxiate, and Pierce animals.””This measure will also address attempts of bestiality and other sexual exploitation of animals.

Dooych tweeted,”We’ll get this thing done.” This is a bipartisan, common sense policy that will protect our animals.”

His congressional colleague Buchanan also said that protecting animals from abuse was his ” top priority.”

“The torture of innocent animals is abominable and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,”he tweeted.

The legislation contains exceptions to hunting, veterinary care and actions required to protect life or property from serious threats to animals.

The Humane Society’s Legislative Fund supports this measure and notes that while most states consider certain animal cruelty offences to be felonies, some penalties are still considered misdemeanors. The group said the bill was endorsed by 284 bipartisan co-sponsors and more than 200 law enforcement officers in the previous Congress. However, former Justice Council Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) Don’t let it come to the floor to vote.

Goodlatte is no longer an opportunity for Congress and supporters of the measure are more optimistic to pass this time.

A previous law to protect animals, the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act, passed in 2010 and outlaws producing gruesome videos of animal abuse.
