Virginia legislators gave in to animal rights activist this past session and passed felony legislation against rooster fighting.... The public did not demand this law.
Regardless of how you feel about this subject, felony punishment for two chickens fighting is rediculous.
Virginia has misdemeanor laws protecting citizens from violent crime and abuse. We should not have laws protecting animals on a higher level than humans...
Legislators should be subject to public demand, not special interest. This is not a plea to support cockfighting, it is a plea for balanced justice and human rights over animal rights...
