The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act of 2011 (H.R. 2492) would make illegal the attendance of any animal fighting event. We need this legislation so that both facilitators and attendees of animal fights are punished. There is no point to making

This legislation is long overdue.

Gladly signed, shared and forwarded.

Anyone who attends an animal fight is taking part in the crime.

I believe this to be true about YouTube and other media outlets, as well,
such as Facebook.

If they allow individuals to post videos or photos of horrific crimes at their sites and
do not report them or intervene in any way, they are by extension part of
the problem and not the solution.

Bottom-feeders the world over are committing heinous crimes of inhumanity against
animals and advertising their crimes at social media outlets because they know they
can get away with it. Laws need to be enacted, harsher punishments in place.

This is much-needed legislation. Long overdue.

It's rather a good thing Care2 doesn't allow us to send hammers to bop people who make insipid comments, isn't it, David? As Michelle said, anyone who attends an animal fight is taking part in a crime - not to mention the sick mentality that gets its thrills by watching animals tear each other apart.

Annoying trolls are annoying. Of course they should be prosecuted.

Signed. The act of animal fighting itself should be illegal - not just the attendance of it.
