After this decision was issued, H.R. 5092 was introduced in Congress. This bill would make it a crime to sell or offer to sell animal crush videos for commercial gain in interstate or foreign commerce. Help stop the use and abuse of animals for videos and other depictions of cruelty that are created and sold for the pleasure and profit of abusers. Call on your U.S. representatives to pass H.R. 5092.
There has since been introduced in Congress a bill, H.R. 5092, which would make it a crime to sell or offer to sell animal crush videos for commercial gain in interstate or foreign commerce.
Animal cruelty is a crime in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. No one should be able to create for profit or pleasure videos or photos that show animal cruelty. Give police and prosecutors this tool to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty and stop the suffering.
Please support H.R. 5092 by signing on as a co-sponsor and urging other representatives to do the same.
