Safety for Animals – level 2

07-02-2019 07:00

It is illegal to films animal torture in the USA, but it is not illegal to torture animals. It may be illegal in some states, but the federal law does not make it illegal everywhere.

There is a new law which would make torturing animals illegal everywhere in the USA. It is called the PACT Act (Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture). If the law passes and people break it, they will have to pay money or go to prison for up to seven years.

Difficult words: torture (make an animal feel great pain), federal law (a law which exists everywhere in the USA), pass (when leaders say ‘yes’, this law exists right now).

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