On Monday, November 25, President Donald J. Trump signed into law the historic H.R. 724, The Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act. This marks the first time that cruelty to animals has been recognized as a federal crime.
President Trump remarked, “This commonsense legislation restricts the creation and distribution of videos or images of animal torture. It is important that we combat these heinous and sadistic acts of cruelty, which are totally unacceptable in a civilized society.”
