In many races, over 60 percent of the birds die due to severe weather, predators, electric line or exhaustion.

Ban pigeon racing in the US? If you really wanted to protect pigeons from racing, I would think your "ban" might be better in say Belgium, Germany, Mexico, or any one of many countries where pigeon racing is actually quite popular rather than in the US where it really isn't. What about banning pigeon eating? Nearly every fine restaurant anywhere close to Hong Kong is going to have pigeon on the menu. Had pigeon many times over there. Of course in the US or Europe this dish is called squab. Makes it sound more appetising I suppose. Of course when raising pigeons for food they prevent them from flying. Makes the meat more tender. Is this better for a pigeon than letting them fly in a race?
Besides that, target Eric Holder? Why? The AG has no authority over any legal activity. The AG can only investigate and prosecute federal crimes. Pigeon racing is not a federal crime.
