U.S. House of Representatives Deals Blow to Crow-Magnons
In October the House of Representatives passed two amendments to the House Farm Bill to ban shipment of birds for cockfighting. The Anti-Cockfighting amendment bans the interstate shipment of game birds from states where cockfighting is illegal to any one of the three states (OK, LA, NM) where cockfighting is still legal. The Animal Fighting amendment bans exports of birds or dogs for fighting purposes to other countries and increases penalties for violations of the anti-fighting section of the Animal Welfare Act.
