    They should make it legal in the 808 states

    Cockfighting should be legalized and it should be governed by the states. Better than that it should be left up to the counties of states just as alcohol is in Kentucky. You have counties that are dry and counties that are not. It is sad that with all the problems in this world and they country our federal government has nothing better to do than want to imprison a man over a chicken. We don’t mind stiffening penalties for cockfighting but when has the federal government stiffened the laws on drunk driving to this extreme. I guess the people of M.A.D.D. don’t have the funds that the HSUS does in order to make that happen. It is a sad day when the life of a chicken is valued more than that of a human.

    Cockfighting should be legal and tax to help farmer and local business. There are not thing else that the game cock could be used beside made and fight that is God will.

    Cockfighting is a hobby and i love it thank God for it everyday

      You thank God for your being cruel to one of His creatures? God directs us to treat His creatures humanely in Proverbs 12:10. Please, re-examine your actions as they are not acceptable to God.

        And who are you to say that it is not acceptable to God?

    Having it legal would bring in much needed dollars to the State. I have seen cockfighting in several countries that I have visited and everyone were having fun just like a mini carnival. The food booths also were well visited by folks that stopped by just to pick up their favorite dish as well as the spectators of the sport. It may be time to put a resolution on the next election ballot and have each county operate the events.
