A group of Representatives have introduced a bill to ban so-called “crush videos,” in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling that handed legal status to the sale of animal-cruelty videos.
But does it go far enough?
The Wall Street Journal is reporting this bill will ONLY target crush videos, which show women slowly crushing small animals to death with their feet or shoes.
From the Wall Street Journal story –
The new ban would apply only to “animal crush videos,” which it defines as depicting real animals “being intentionally crushed, burned, drowned, or impaled” if those acts are illegal where the video is sold.
Dog fighting, at minimum, needs to be included in this bill or a separate bill. The sooner, the better.
