LOUISIANA: COCKFIGHTING LEGISLATION FAILS
SB 652, legislation that would prohibit the cruel and barbaric
bloodsport of cockfighting, failed to be reported favorably out of the
House Agriculture Committee last week. Although the bill made history
by passing favorably out of two Senate Committees and achieving
victory and successful passage on the floor of the Senate, the bill
was deferred in the House Agriculture Committee by a vote of 9 to 4.
