    Thumbs up Animal-friendly Laws Introduced In Congress In 2005

    From www.aspca.org. You can also find the complete listing of federal legislation that the ASPCA worked on in 2005 here.

    Many innovative and groundbreaking humane laws were introduced in Congress last year. These covered a variety of issues, ranging from animal fighting and horse slaughter to Internet hunting and captive primates. As session came to a close for 2005, however, most of these bills were still pending. Following are just some of the bills that the ASPCA—and you, animal advocates—lobbied for last year:

    - The Pet Animal Welfare Statute, which would amend the Animal Welfare Act to cover facilities in which more than six litters of dogs or cats are born per year, as well as breeders who annually sell more than 25 dogs and cats. Passage of this legislation would require that these breeders be licensed by the USDA and comply with standards of care set forth in the Animal Welfare Act.

    - The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act, introduced by Representative Tom Lantos (D-CA), which would require the director of FEMA to take into account the needs of individuals with household pets and service animals when making local and federal emergency plans.

    - The Captive Primate Safety Act, which would ban interstate commerce in apes, monkeys, marmosets, lemurs and other nonhuman primates for the pet trade.

    This is just a guess, but maybe Internet hunting is like the concept behind Hostel...a site on the Internet where people can pay to go somewhere and hunt wild game in a controlled environment?

    Are you kidding me? That is one of the more disgusting things that I have ever heard. Wonder how the hunters would like being the target of MY mouse.

    How can people find that entertaining? It's not a freaking video game, you are actually killing, or more likely just hurting something. The internet isn't perfect, there's time delay, the animal isn't gonna necessarily gonna be where you thought it was when you clicked your mouse!

    Kind of like shooting fish in a barrel. But I guess that is OK with some people, too.
    Keep passing the open windows.
