Stop spectators at animal fights
February 26, 2012 · Updated 5:45 AM
Would there be animal fights if there weren’t any spectators? It’s the spectators who fuel dogfights and cockfights with their admission fees and gambling wagers. Currently, there is no federal penalty for attending an animal fight. Let’s change that now!
The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (S. 1947/H.R. 2492) has been introduced to prohibit knowing attendance at an organized animal fight and to impose additional penalties for exposing a child to this violence and blood-letting.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to Sen. Maria Cantwell 202-224-3441 and Sen. Patty Murray 202-224-2621, and Rep. Rick Larsen, 202- 225-2605, urging co-sponsorship of S. 1947/H.R. 2492. Don’t forget to send a follow-up message.
