Fairly sure that cock and dog fighting is a felony in all 50 states. They're just clairifying that there is a punishment for animal fighting, even if it isn't the conventional dog or chicken.

I believe you are right about it being a federal (nationwide) law. I live in Tennessee, and I know it's illegal here. At the farm where I kept my horse there was a neighbor up the road who kept fighting chickens...When the law came down that it was illegal to keep them, there was a terrible massacre on his front lawn. :( It was awful...such a horrible man. :(
That was several years ago now.

GOOD! I'm glad I was wrong then. NC DOES have some antiquated laws. I figured this was another. LOL

NO. Cock and Dog fighting have their own statues and laws, stating they are felonies.

This is a separate law, which supplements the federal law, by outlining additional penalties.

In other words, SC and NC go beyond federal guidelines, and beyond the guidelines that many other states have!

(I admit, I was pleasantly surprised!)

It just makes me mad they thought they were so cool. Like don't they have a life on a Saturday? Maybe go to a party or play a sport or something. They are that lame and bored to fight innocent animals. I think I will go in tomorrow and tell the manager about it. Maybe they have cameras and can find the guys. I would definitely know how to pick them out of a crowd.

Seaman2012 - Does your state have laws prohibiting animal (including fish) fighting? If so, you can print out the law, and bring it to the store. That should help the manager have a reason to ban these people from coming back, or even better, it could give him/her a reason to call the police, if they show up again.
