PROTECTOR-IN-CHIEF: Trump Signs New Bill Making Animal Cruelty a Federal Felony

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.26.19

President Trump signed a bipartisan bill this week that designates certain acts of animal cruelty a federal felony; saying the new legislation will help fight “heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty” across the country.

“The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT) prohibits extreme acts of cruelty, including intentional crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating, impalement, carried out against ‘living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians,'” reports Fox News.

“Even though animal cruelty is a crime in all 50 states, animal activists claim the new law will make it easier for the federal government to prosecute those who carry out the abuse. The bill signed by Trump makes animal cruelty punishable by a fine, up to seven years in prison or both,” adds Fox.

“Great job! Donald Trump signs animal cruelty bill targeting ‘heinous and sadistic’ animal ‘crush’ videos,” posted Eric Trump on social media.
