Recently, the Supreme Court ruled that the 1999 Crush Act was vaguely written and infringed on first amendment rights, so it was overturned. “Crush” videos portray high-heeled feet stomping small animals to death. However, after much persistence from the animal-loving community, the
House of Representatives passed a new bill (416-3) H.R. 5566, the Prevention of Interstate Commerce in Animal Crush Videos Act of 2010. The bill enforces a ban on the sale and circulation of animals shown crushed, drowned, stabbed or burned. U.S.
This comes as a victory for animals throughout the
, but now it is imperative that the Senate passes a similar bill to ensure these torture videos are ban for good. Please contact your Senators and urge them to introduce a Crush Videos Act of 2010. Urge them to cosponsor and support such a bill so that it will become law and save thousands of animals’ lives! US
