These laws are seldom enforced, however, and, even on the rare occasions when conviction is obtained, penalties are small. Because of class B dealers’ often dubious sources, as well as the fact that the genetics and health of the animals they supply are unknown, many laboratories avoid such dealers, and animal protection groups and even some USDA officials have recommended that this category be eliminated entirely. The Society for Animal Protective Legislation, a division of the Animal Welfare Institute, has urged Congress to pass the Pet Safety and Protection Act, a federal law that would prohibit class B dealers, unlicensed individuals, and pounds from selling dogs and cats to laboratories.

The second federal law governs slaughterhouses. In a normal slaughterhouse, cattle or pigs are run along a chute into a restraint device where each animal is supposed to be stunned (rendered unconscious), usually by a blow to the head. It is then hoisted by its legs onto a conveyor line and killed by having its throat slit, causing it to bleed to death within seconds. In the first half of the century, however, stunning methods were sometimes ineffective, resulting in animals being bled out or even occasionally dismembered or skinned while still conscious.

The review stated that the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) had come to a similar conclusion. Meanwhile, HSUS and five poultry consumers filed suit against the USDA in December 2005 in an attempt to force it to include poultry in the protections granted by the federal slaughter law. Most other industrialized countries have laws similar to the Twentyeight-Hour Act and the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act, some of which were passed or strengthened because of massive public protests. Such protests broke out in Australia in the 1980s and in Britain in 1995, for example, following publicity about the stressful conditions during long-distance (especially overseas) transport of live animals.
