A Congressional Blow to Animal Fighting

A cockfighting gaff.

A cockfighting gaff.

On Tuesday night the Senate unanimously passed the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act, which makes it a felony to transport an animal across state or nation borders for animal fighting; it also prohibits inter-state and national commerce in weapons used for cockfighting. The House passed the same bill a few weeks ago, and it’s expected that Bush will sign it into law.

In related news, Louisiana, last outpost of cockfighting, is kind of maybe sort of thinking of banning the grisly “sport” as well. Governor Kathleen Blanco and others on Capitol Hill want cockfighting banned, though some politicians just want to co-opt the matches and tax them, to create a financial (blood-soaked) “life jacket” to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
