      No Spectators, No Sport

      Dear Michelle,

      Over the past decade, Congress has strengthened the federal penalties for animal fighting numerous times, but has left one major gap in the law -- there is no penalty for attending an animal fight. It's the spectators who fuel dogfights and cockfights with their admission fees and gambling wagers. The Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act (S. 1947/H.R. 2492) has been introduced to prohibit knowing attendance at an organized animal fight and to impose additional penalties for exposing a child to this violence and blood-letting.

      Please make a brief, polite phone call to Senator Orrin G. Hatch (202) 224-5251and Mike Lee (202) 224-5444, and Representative Rob W. Bishop (202) 225-0453, urging co-sponsorship of S. 1947/H.R. 2492. Don't forget to send a follow-up message. Thank you.
