Spectators Should Be Punished

The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act would make spectators of these events punishable by fines and up to one year in prison.

The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act would make individuals attending these events punishable by fines and up to one year in prison.

Spectators at illegal dog fighting events are not punishable by their mere presence at such events. The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, S 666 , makes knowingly attending an animal fight punishable by fines and up to one year in prison.

Dog fighting is illegal in all 50 states, yet people who attend these illegal activities are never punished—only those who are caught engaging in the fighting itself. To be a spectator at a known illegal activity should be just as punishable as actively participating in the illegal activity.

Contact your senators and urge them to support the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, S 666.
