House Okays Funding To Enforce Animal Fighting Law

On Tuesday (7/13), the U.S. House of Representatives approved by voice vote an amendment, offered by Congressmen Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Tom Tancredo (R-CO), that earmarks $1.2 million for USDA enforcement of the federal law against cruel animal fighting.

The amendment will help ensure that the USDA enforces the ban on interstate and foreign commerce in fighting dogs and fighting cocks, and that the federal government works more closely with state and local police to crack down on illegal animal fighting enterprises. The amendment provides a 50% increase over what Congress appropriated last year for this purpose ($800,000). Senate action on the Agriculture Appropriations bill and on the animal fighting enforcement funding is still ahead. ",”
