ii - The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act

 

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) is a United States federal law (Pub.L. 109–374; 18 U.S.C. 43) that prohibits any person from engaging in certain conduct "for the purpose of damaging or interfering with the operations of an animal enterprise. The statute covers any act that either "damages or causes the loss of any real or personal property" or "places a person in reasonable fear" of injury."

 

The Act gives the U.S. Department of Justice greater authority to target animal rights activists.
