United Poultry Concerns Cockfighting

Oklahoma Voters Ban Cockfighting in 2002

In November 2002 Oklahoma voters passed State Question 687, making Oklahoma the 48th state to ban cockfighting. The ban makes cockfighting and related activities a felony offense punishable for up to ten years in prison. Oklahoma is the 27th state to adopt felony-level penalties for cockfighting. New Mexico is being targeted next in the campaign to outlaw cockfighting in every state in the union. Cockfighting is now legal only in Louisiana and parts of New Mexico. In Virginia, however, the law needs tightened to make cockfighting itself illegal and not just the gambling aspect, as is now the case.
