Trump Gets Bill To Make Animal Abuse A Federal Crime

ABC News reports:

The U.S. Senate has passed a bill making certain types of animal cruelty a federal felony. The Senate unanimously passed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, which criminalizes certain acts of animal cruelty. The bipartisan bill will now be sent to President Donald Trump’s desk for his signature.

“Passing this legislation is a major victory in the effort to stop animal cruelty and make our communities safer,” said Sen. Pat Toomey, who sponsored the bill in the Senate along with Sen.
