I went in to our animal protective league yesterday and I saw the cutest little Chihuahua. It wasn’t available because it wasn’t spayed yet until after the new year. The dog appeared to be pregnant and the worker confirmed she was. I asked the worker you can’t spay this dog when it is pregnant, and she said yes we do. Does this not fall under Trumps new cruelty to animals law? It seems so unfair.
No it does not. This new law criminalizes intentional acts of crushing animals in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce. This legislation retains existing law which already prohibits knowingly creating or distributing an animal crush video in interstate or foreign commerce. Crushing is defined to include conduct in which an animal is purposely crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury.
