Description

The Animal and Ecological Terrorism Act, which recognizes animal and eco-terrorism as forms of domestic terrorism, has been drafted by the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance. The draft bill, which is currently being circulated to state legislators across the country, would increase penalties for persons participating in politically motivated actions and it creates specific penalties for those who aid in such acts of terrorism. "Animal and ecological terrorists endanger lives, set back life-saving medical research and strike fear into the hearts of countless researchers, business people, farmers, sportsmen and more," the alliance states.
