Cockfighting as a felony passes Utah House

Utah Legislature passes bill strengthening penalties for cockfighting

Senate Bill 134, Game Fowl Fighting – Amendments, passed the third House reading March 10, 2015 at 9:47 p.m. with a vote of 41 to 33. The bill was modified in the House to increase the penalty for cockfighting to a third degree felony on the third offense. After three years, the Humane Society of Utah believes this legislation is a step in the right direction to increase penalties for animal cruelty laws.
