Animal Rights Act Violations Overwhelming Courts

The court system has been overwhelmed with cases of animal-on-animal violence since passage of the Animal Rights Act.

(Washington, D.C.) Since passage of the Animals Rights Act, thousands of court cases involving animal-on-animal violence have been piling up, clogging the legal system and confounding legal experts.

Washington D.C. attorney Blair Witchell told ecoEnquirer, "I don't think anyone anticipated the level of violence in the animal kingdom that we have seen since passage of the ARA. Some of these cases involve, quite frankly, inhuman acts...sometimes even cannibalism within the same species."

Many of the animicide cases reported to the FBI will never be solved, as federal investigators often arrive on the crime scene only to find partially eaten bodies of animals, and little forensic evidence of the identity of the perpetrator.

"We have been inundated by phone calls from citizens who find the bodies after the crime has been committed", said Special Agent J. Edgar Grisham of the FBI. "Rarely are there eyewitnesses. Sometimes, gangs of animals are involved in the incident...usually coyotes." Animal Equality for All spokesperson Jimmy Locksmith expressed concern over racial profiling tactics used by the FBI, saying "Just because a pack of coyotes is roaming around doesn't mean a crime is being committed."

Motives for the killings often appear to be related to hunger on the part of the attacker. The attacks usually cross species lines, suggesting racial motivations are also involved in many of the incidents.

As a result of the widespread animicidal behavior, animal rights activists are calling for federal financial assistance to provide food to starving animals. According to Greenpolice spokesperson Rainbow Treetower, "It is becoming obvious that the best way to prevent much of this violence is to provide food assistance to these animals." Ms. Treetower also suggested that humans are to blame for much of the violence, noting that mankind's destruction of native habitats is putting undue stress on many animals, stress which is then often expressed through violent acts.
