CA Cockfighting Bill

The California state Senate has passed legislation to curb illegal cockfighting.

California’s state Senate has passed a new bill that could help curb illegal cockfighting practices. Sponsored by Sen. Ron Calderon, Senate Bill 425 increases the minimum fines for cockfighting participants and spectators. Bill 426, which the Senate will vote on this Monday, would allow landlords to evict tenants using property for animal fighting. “This vote by the California Senate brings us closer to stopping this cruel blood sport where roosters fight to the death with knives tied to their legs,” said Jennifer Fearing, California senior state director for the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). According to HSUS, more than 21,000 birds have been found dead or alive in relation to the sport since 2008.
