Animal cruelty bill


Recommended Posts

Summary of bill...

This bill revises and expands criminal provisions with respect to animal crushing.

It retains existing criminal offenses that prohibit knowingly creating or distributing an animal crush video using interstate commerce. The bill also adds a new provision to criminalize an intentional act of animal crushing. A violator is subject to criminal penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to seven years, or both.

It provides additional exceptions for conduct, or a video of conduct, including conduct that is (1) medical or scientific research, (2) necessary to protect the life or property of a person, (3) performed as part of euthanizing an animal, or (4) unintentional.

Animal abuse legislature was quashed in MS in 2016 by current Republican governor candidate Tate Reeves (aka Tater Face) due largely to the lobbying efforts of Mississippi Farm Bureau (insurance).  Don't get your hopes up, people.


I was going to ask if a federal law was really needed in this area. Seems like the states should have it covered.

But I guess I'm wrong.
