Cruelty to animals is now a federal crime

“The approval of this measure by the Congress and the president marks a new era in the codification of kindness to animals within federal law. For decades, a national anti-cruelty law was a dream for animal protectionists. Today, it is a reality.”

The penalty for violating the law can include fines, up to seven years in jail or both, according to the legislation.
