Animal Cruelty a Federal Crime?

November 7, 2019

How can animal cruelty be a crime against the United States?

People mistakenly think that making a violation a ‘federal’ crime is an upgrade, and a way to recognize the severity of a crime.

It doesn’t upgrade the crime. For instance, murder is not a federal crime and it can still result in the death penalty.

We have a limited number of federal attorneys.

Animal cruelty should be handled at the local level, within each state.

The federal legislators are poaching in state legislative territory again trying to override the states’ abilities to handle issues as they see fit.
