President Trump signs Historic bill making cruelty to Animals a Federal crime
President Donald Trump signed his presidency’s first animal cruelty bill on Monday, effectively outlawing animal violence usually committed for videotaping purposes.
The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act was passed unanimously by the Senate this month following a similar House vote last month.

The law applies to non-human mammals, including birds, reptiles, and amphibians.The act was built on a law that criminalized the distribution of so-called ‘crush’ videos in 2010 – videos which are meant for the purpose of satisfying extreme sexual fetishes- by also banning the production of such films.

The new law also expands the definition to include animals that are ‘crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled or subjected to serious bodily injury.’
President Trump stated the new bill would prevent people from sharing footage depicting such animal cruelty:
“It is important that we combat these heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty,” the President said.
Lara Trump, who is an Animal welfare advocate, said she was proud her father-in-law put his signature on the legislation.
“I could not be more excited for President Trump to take this historic step today, publicly signing into law a bill tackling the nefarious and unacceptable world of animal cruelty,” she said in a statement.
“Our companion pets are family members, and our working dogs are our heroes, and any movement to signal and enforce a positive environment for these great animals is a step in the right direction,” Ms. Trump added.
