Safety for Animals – level 1

07-02-2019 07:00

This news is about a law in the USA. There it is illegal to torture animals and film this. Torturing animals ‘only’ is OK. In some states, it is illegal. In other states, it is legal. There is no federal ban on torturing animals.

This can change soon. There is a new law. It is called PACT. If leaders say ‘yes’ to PACT, torturing animals become illegal everywhere in the USA.

Difficult words: illegal (people must not do illegal things), torture (make an animal feel great pain), federal ban (a law that makes something illegal in the whole USA).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
