    A Proposed Bill Will Make Animal Cruelty a Federal Felony I6ke0

    From CNN

    Cole Higgins of CNN wrote:
    A Proposed Bill Will Make Animal Cruelty a Federal Felony 190128141342-animal-cruelty-exlarge-169

    Two lawmakers -- a Democrat and a Republican -- have proposed a bill that will make animal cruelty a federal felony.

    Congressman Ted Deutch and Vern Buchanan, both from Florida, think the PACT Act will close a gap that's existed for years.

    Federal law prohibits animal fighting. And it also criminalizes animal cruelty if the wrongdoers create and sell videos depicting the act.

    But the PACT Act -- which stands for Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture -- will broaden the scope of prosecutors.

    For instance, right now, all 50 states have laws in their books against animal cruelty on the state level. But what if the animals being tortured cross state lines?

    If the bill passes, authorities can go after the wrongdoers because they have federal jurisdiction. They can also prosecute criminals if the cruelty occurs on federal property.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/28/us/animal-cruelty-federal-felony-bill-trnd/index.html

    I'm glad this bill is being proposed.  It's high for those criminals to get what they have coming for abusing and torturing these defenseless animals.

    Just Saying.

    Good. It pains me to see animals abused by those entrusted into their care.
