Animal Cruelty Is Now A Felony Thanks To The Pact Act


It's sad that bills like this have to exist, when i hear of animals purposely being  crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury, it hurts my soul. I can't imagine anyone purposely doing these things to innocent animals. These crimes happen way too often and very little was done about it.

Thankfully speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ceremoniously signed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act that will make many versions of animal cruelty a federal crime. The PACT Act specifically targets crimes against animals considered as “crushing,” The bill follows a 2010 law that prevented such activities from being published on video. A person convicted under the PACT Act, could spend up to seven years in prison.

GOP Sen. Pat Toomey, a co-sponsor of the bill said. “Passing this legislation is a major victory in the effort to stop animal cruelty and make our communities safer,” he said. “Evidence shows that the deranged individuals who harm animals often move on to committing acts of violence against people. It is appropriate that the federal government have strong animal cruelty laws and penalties.”



“Today, I was honored to sign @RepTedDeutch’s #PACTAct to make animal cruelty a federal offense,” Pelosi tweeted Friday along with photos from the signing. “Our furry friends, Milo and Prudence, were on hand to help me enroll this bipartisan legislation that will now go to the President’s desk!”

 So that's it. The PACT Act has now passed out of both the House and Senate and just needs to be signed by the President for the U.S to have a federal anti-cruelty statute.
