On April 15, a man was sentenced to 120 days in jail for only one count of felony animal cruelty (and one count of second-degree burglary) after killing of 920 chickens with a golf club. Because of a loophole in California’s penal code, the perpetrator of this crime wasn’t charged with 920 acts of felony animal cruelty, but only one. And that’s why the Animal Legal Defense Fund is working hard to build a groundswell of support to close these loopholes not just in California, but in every state. Our legal system must count each animal as a separately actionable victim.

Signed,

Animal Legal Defense Fund
