No Change in Cock Fighting Laws
Legislation that would make cock fighting a felony is dead this session after failing to pass the Senate. Under the bill, a first offense for cock fighting would have remained a misdemeanor. But a second offense would be considered a felony punishable by six years in prison and a fine of up to $3,000. Opponents of the legislation say it didn't specifically say that raising such chickens would not be a crime and could cause problems for farmers and others in the poultry business. The proposal fell short by 17 votes.
