We're sorry, but you cannot take action on this alert. This may be because the alert is restricted to specific states or to constituents of specific representatives, or because your address does not match a ZIP code we can properly map to your representative, or because your representative does not have a contact email address or webform.

any wrong doing act to any animal should be an automatic felony with severe consequences to curb the thought to do it again or ever!

As a former resident of Nevada, and now living on the border, I implore you to put a stop to this despicable "sport" once and for all. It benefits no one but those who enjoy pain and causes great suffering for the roosters. It also encourages drug use and other illegal activities while the participants and thrill seekers watch.-----

When you befriend anyone, who would mistreat or become involved in such animal fights, you befriend them at your own risk.
