"Crush" Bill Passes in U.S. House and Senate

Dear Friend,

You've heard from us about important legislation to crack down on traffickers of cruel animal "crush" videos. Thanks to the actions of members like you, I'm happy to report that this bill has just won final congressional approval!

H.R. 5566 will ban the creation and distribution in interstate and foreign commerce of obscene videos showing animals being impaled, crushed, drowned, burned, or suffocated -- often by women in stiletto heels -- for the sexual titillation of viewers. We believe this new law will deter the creation of these videos and spare thousands of animals from this extremely cruel fate.

Please make a brief, polite phone call to the White House at (202) 456-1414 and urge President Obama to sign H.R. 5566 into law. And, don't forget to send a follow-up message.

Thank you for all your do for animals.

Wayne Pacelle
