Urge Congress to pass the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, which will decrease the appeal of cockfighting and hopefully lead to the eventual discontinuation of the activity.

I have no patience or desire to understand the people that intentionally harm animals for their entertainment. Humans can make a choice to be or not a professional fighter or any other sport. Animals have no choice, therefore it is not a sport, just forced cruelty.

It is not so much important how high the penalty is. It´s more important to get the culprits soon and condem them reliable and always.

To them it is just a form of gambling I think, they dont think of the Roosters as being anything but a number, like racehorses..when money is involved then all commonsense and eithics go out of the window. Like Carol says, there are so many sadistic people ...too many.

Signed & Shared! Hard to believe that this horrific animal abuse wasn't banned years ago and that Alabama and Mississippi treat such cruelty as just a misdemeanor punishable by $50.00! How can you ever become a progressive state if you don't recognize why we should take animal cruelty seriously! What kind of a mentality is that fostering?!

Cockfighting is such a cruel activity. Those roosters are left blinded & crippled, if they aren't killed. The people going to these fights have a pack mentality, & they all need to be in jail for as long as possiible.
