State Rep. Mike Strain has filed legislation to ban cockfighting in Louisiana, a similar measure that was defeated last year.
Strain pre-filed House Bill 101 which prohibits anyone from promoting or conducting a cockfight, on either commercial or private property.
“It is time Louisiana joins the rest of the country in banning this blood sport,” Strain continued.
“Now that New Mexico has banned cockfighting, we are the lone state that allows it,”
“Under my legislation, anyone convicted of organizing or promoting a cockfight may be fined not more than $1,000, or imprisonment for not more than six months, or both.”
The bill has been tentatively referred to the House Agriculture, and Rural Development Committee.River Region Drama Guild puts on Bicentennial play at DHS
