Fischer filed an amendment to change the bill from including four legged animals to canines and porcines. Apparently dogs and pigs are the only animals he is opposed to fighting. Last year Fischer attached abortion language to the bill.
The Houndsmen opposed the bill on the grounds that it could affect them, even though the bill and state statute specifically exempt hunting from animal cruelty laws.
Their position is despicable, and their mission is to keep Ky last in the nation on animal laws.
Please contact your legislators at 1-800-372-7181, and ask them to support HB 154 against dogfighting! Don’t let our state be held hostage by small special interest groups with questionable motives!
