"The cockfighting legislation is hot!"
The Humane Society of the US
Congress has two bills that would clamp down on cockfighting by
banning the transport of birds bred for fighting over state
lines. Senate Bill 345 has 39 co-sponsors and House Bill 1275 has
over 100 cosponsors--strong support!
Help close down the Crow-Magnons! Please contact your two
Senators and ask them to support S 345. Write to them at US
Senate, Washington DC 20510. Please ask your Congressperson to
support HR 1275. Write to him/her at US House of Representatives,
Washington DC 20515.
