Crush Bill Becomes Law, December 2010
An Animal Rights Article from


American Anti-Vivisection Society (AAVS) 
December 2010

Last month, we told you that the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act. Crush fetish videos use rabbits and other small animals such as kittens, puppies, mice, hamsters and others. Videos/photos show women in heels piercing and crushing animals to death. This new bill enforces a law against crush videos. It will ban the sale/circulation of animals shown being crushed, drowned, stabbed or burned.

We are happy to report that President Obama has now signed this bill into law (12/10).

This legislation will protect countless animals from the cruelty involved in making “crush videos” that cater to sick fetishes. Thank you to everyone who took action on this important issue!
