The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT) was a bipartisan bill that criminalized the “intentional crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impalement or other serious harm” to “living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians.”
So choking out an iguana, a species which is taking over Florida like a plague, is now a federal offense.
The bill also criminalizes “animal snuff films,” meaning any photograph, motion picture film, video or digital recording or electronic image that depicts animal cruelty.
So…no kicking your dog on camera, folks. Do it when nobody is looking.
The penalty for breaking this law is prison up to seven years.
It was introduced by Ted Deutch, D-Fla., and Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., and pushed through the Senate by Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Patrick J. Toomey, R-Pa. Trump signed it into law.
In related news, it is not a federal crime to criminalize “the intentional crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impalement or other serious harm” to a pre-born human being.
