According to the Humane Society of the United States, last night, the U.S. Senate unanimously approved legislation (H.R. 5566, as amended) to ban the sale of cruel animal "crush" videos. These sick films feature women in high-heeled shoes impaling, crushing, stomping or smothering small animals for the titillation of viewers. The legislation now goes back to the House, which approved it overwhelmingly in July by a vote of 416-3, to act on the Senate-passed version.
I'm headed for the telephone to urge my representative to vote in favor of the bill. All of us at For Love of a Dog Jewelry urge you to do the same.
