Update: Oklahoma Cockfighters Lose Another Round

The Oklahoma House of Representatives has shot down legislation that would have created a ballot measure to weaken penalties for cockfighting and make some forms of cockfighting legal again. S.B. 835 was crafted by cockfighters in reaction to the 2002, voter-approved ban on cockfighting. The bill narrowly passed the Oklahoma Senate earlier this year but was decisively defeated in the House last Thursday (5/27) by a vote of 56 to 38, thanks to concerted lobbying efforts by local animal advocates.
