Sen. Arnold’s SB 11 elevates attending an animal fighting contest from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class D felony. Current law regards attending an animal fighting contest as “cruelty to animals” as a Class A misdemeanor – raised to Class D felony if the person attending is also in possession of an animal.
Probably has something to do with living with dogs most of my life; but I have no patience for being cruel to animals for sport. I probably get worked up less than I should when the poor living conditions are for a useful purpose — e.g. mass produced pork and beef — but, without even that justification; you’re just getting your kicks off of watching animals damage each other, let those folks rot in jail.
