Yet another thing the federal government has n damn business sticking their tyrannic nose into. The states or even counties as far as that goes are perfectly capable of handling any kind of animal torture. This is just another item the federal government is adding to its list of things to take over. When are people going to wake the hell up and realize the federal government is not the solution to everyone's problems. Its quite the opposite, more often than not getting the government involved is the cause of the problem.
