While I think it's important to punish those who participate in dogfighting, I'm curious as to how they determine who is or isn't a "commercial" dog breeder? Will there be training for the service workers to teach them what various breeds look like to determine what is or isn't correct weight, etc so there are not imprudent or incorrect calls on "cruelty"? Who's disaster plans? It appears to be a pretty broad ordinance and I would be curious about the ramifications for those who are already good dog owners who become unwitting criminals based on the new provisions.

It's about damn time. I am happy to see that eyes are opening and people are realizing that it's not the breed but the deed. Finally...a felony. Now if all states can adopt the same laws. I still think those laws should be much stiffer than they are, but, it's a start.

I think the tougher laws are great. But I think people who go to watch dog fights should also be fined and the money used to help the dogs that are injured. Every state should implement these laws. There is no excuse for animal abuse. Our animals trust us and rely on us to take care of them. They can't talk so we need to talk for them.

Dog fighting is so horrible and stupid! Why would you want to dog that kind of sport. Any body who does this should be sent to jail for life!

Good to know that there are tougher penalties because dog fighting is a terrible thing.
