Make Cockfighting a Felony in Kentucky


39 states have classified cockfighting as a felony, but Kentucky lags behind. Animal fighting is only a misdemeanor in the state.

There is also a loophole in the law, as the phrasing of the law is ambiguous. As it is written now, many believe the current law against animal fighting does not apply to chickens, but only protects four-legged animals. 

Cockfighting has grown in popularity in Kentucky as a result, with people coming from out of state to watch the bloodsport. It is estimated that one million roosters are used in cockfights each year in the state.
