President Trump signs animal cruelty bill into law, making it a federal felony [Excellent!] | 25 Nov 2019 | Animal cruelty has officially become a federal felony after President Donald Trump signed the bill into law on Monday afternoon. The bipartisan bill, Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture (PACT) Act, criminalizes certain acts of animal cruelty. The bill was passed in the Senate by unanimous decision on Nov. 5 after being approved in the House in late October. "Passing this legislation is a major victory in the effort to stop animal cruelty and make our communities safer," Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., said earlier this month when the bill, which Toomey sponsored along with Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., passed in the Senate.
