While the abuse, cruelty and neglect of animals are commonplace, laws to protect animals have, in many cases failed to hold offenders accountable for their actions.  Although long overdue, the good news is that the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture PACT (Act) was finally signed, making it illegal to engage in cruel acts towards animals.

President Trump signed the PACT Act on Monday, November 25, saying “I am pleased to sign the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act into law. It is important that we combat these heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty, which are totally unacceptable in a civilized society.”

The official Congress website states, “The PACT Act makes “animal crushing” a nationwide felony in the U.S. Animal crushing is defined as when any “living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians is purposely crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury.”

Unfortunately, many animals remain unprotected in the US as the bill excludes treatment of livestock in the animal agriculture industry; slaughtering animals for food; procedures in the veterinary field or other related industries; hunting, trapping, and fishing; predator and pest control; scientific or medical research; euthanasia; and self-defense. Reasonable to some perhaps but these exceptions are seen as extremely unreasonable by many.

Although this act was introduced earlier this year, it is an extension of a law passed by President Obama in 2010 which was recently passed in the House and the Senate, finally reaching the President’s desk a few weeks later. The bill was supported by Republicans and Democrats in the House and the Senate.
