ANIMAL GOOD NEWS
UPDATE: DOUBLE STRIKE AGAINST COCKFIGHTING:
Strong anti-cockfighting legislation was signed into law in the past week in two different states. On Tuesday (6/24), Florida governor Jeb Bush signed into law HB 1911, a bill that makes it illegal not only to actively stage an animal fight, but also to breed, transport, sell or possess any animal for the purpose of animal fighting (see HUMANElines Issue 246).
One day later, similar anti-cockfighting legislation was signed into law in Oregon. When Governor Ted Kulongoski signed HB 2086 into law on Wednesday (6/25), he made it a Class C felony to breed, possess, or sell fighting birds for the purpose of fighting. Congratulations to hard-working activists across the country who worked behind the scenes to pass these important measures!
