Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act: Urge Your U.S. House Representative’s Support

The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (U.S. Senate 1947/H.R. 2492) would make it a federal offense to attend an organized animal fight and increases the penalties for bringing a minor (a person under 18) to a cockfight, dogfight, or any other staged animal fight.

The U.S. Senate passed S. 1947 on December 4, 2012. The companion bill H.R. 2492 is now in the U.S. House of Representatives Committees on Agriculture and Judiciary. Please contact your U.S. House Representative and urge him or her to support H.R. 2492, The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act.

SAMPLE LETTER

The Honorable _____________
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Representative ______________:

As a member of your congressional district, I am writing to urge you please to support The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (US S. 1947/H.R. 2492).

This legislation would make it a federal offense to attend an organized animal fight and increases penalties for bringing a minor to a cockfight, dogfight, or any other staged animal fight.

The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act will strengthen federal-level penalties for participation in animal fighting activities.

Please support H.R. 2492 and advise me of your decision.

Thank you very much for your attention. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Your name, mailing address/zipcode & email address & phone number


if you are there,
you are guilty, too.
those who promote
such horrors
depend on you.
so people in power,
make it clear,
that if you have
any connection
to animal fighting
you will pay
a price,
severe!!!!
