The Development of the AntiCruelty Laws Animal Law

7 hours ago

1. The nineteenth century saw a significant transformation of society's attitude toward animals, (2) which was reflected in the legal system. The legal system began the century viewing animals as items of personal property not much different than a shovel or plow.

The last half of the nineteenth century saw the adoption of anti-cruelty laws which became the solid foundation upon which today's laws still stand. As will be discussed, during the 1860's and 1870's Henry Bergh of New York City was a primary force in the adoption, distribution, and enforcement of these laws in the United States.

The Animal Welfare Act generally refers to animals used in scientific experiments and does not pertain to companion animals (i.e., pets) or animals raised for food.

Some states have protections against animal fighting as well. State anti-cruelty statutes as applied to companion animals often work to convict persons accused of animal abuse. A federal law on the treatment of companion animals may help prevent these abuses from happening in the first place through regulating who can own pets, sell pets and regulating spaying and neutering.
