It's illegal in most states and across Asia and western Europe.
Florida, for example, has very strict laws against animal fighting and Bettas are considered equal with dogs. Fighting Bettas in Florida is a 3rd degree felony, as with most other US states.
i also looked it up not too long ago. most state laws don't specify just dogs when it comes to animal fighting, but count roosters, and other vertebrates. it differs from state to state, but that's what most states state in their animal fighting laws.
also, Feral, i will, but only if people want me to. .____. i don't wanna get in trouble on here. x-X
