The thing about the case is the wording of the laws, and how seperate laws would interact with each other/
This ruling, essentially, says torturing animals to death is legal if the act is recorded. I don't know if Texas has other laws against torturing animals, but even then this ruling would - since it involves a Right, could easily trump the other laws too.
As morbid as it sounds, I'd actually like to see the results of someone using this as a defense for other crimes. Most specifically, murder and rape.
