    that is so sad if true ! I think kentucky is
    one of the last bastion of where you can
    still fight.

    " one life time is not enough to learn about
    gamefowl breeding". it is like a vast universe
    what can come out will never cease to amaze us".

    Hi Guys from KY,
    As a brother to our dear sports, please keep in your mind that election time is coming, that's where you can show this politicians that their ambition is in your hand and vote wisely.

    this is not true.. the legislative session in ky is already over for this year.. only legislation against us right now is attached to the farm bill the "federal spectator prohibition act".

    like joe said.. come to the kygba meeting.. or joing the kygba and stay informed

    Read once a few months back that according to a state legislator, attending a cockfight will never be a felony in CA because of cost and space in our jails/prisons. Inmates are being released early, etc, etc.

    Currently the spectator fine is $1,000 and the organizer fine is $5,000 on a first time misdemeanor. 2nd offence is a felony. This is current CA state law. It is true they are trying to change things. However what I have read about the bill is that it will raise the fines for first time offence. $5,000 is the spectator fine and $10,000 as the organizer.


    I will have to look up about KY law though.

    Re: kentcuky felony cockfighting law passed

    State law and fed law are different. If the sheriff or state police raid a pit the state law gets used. If the USDA raids then fed law gets used. Under fed law cockfighting is a felony. Remember that's the law they used in south Carolina. Since that case they don't have to even show a single feather crossed state lines. Be careful out there. Nowhere in the USA is safe for cocking

    Guys, listen to me. YOu need to know this.

    Cockfighting IS a felony in all 50 states if the feds make the case instead of the local or state police. Now they are thinking about making that law cover the spectators too!

    Be careful out there. And call Congress. Tell them to stop ****ing over the gamefowl breeders.

    You with a couple of well know friends in your well covered property harvesting, You shouldn't have a problem! Now you and your buddy's heard about this guy thats having 20+ entries for a show in his backyard!, Now your asking to get caught! Sometimes its common sense, with these things. Even if you know your neighbors really well having 30+ grown men coming into your backyard if just asking for law enforcement to come to your property! My Brother in law is LA sheriff, and he tells me how dumb some people are on organizing. He says he would rather bust Killers and drug criminal but he still has to uphold all current laws but if its just a couple of guys he just turn the other way because he doesn't see anything suspicious. He has been to many raids all because they get a tip about men showing up with boxes! He tells me to watch out on big shows, because they are trying to come down on cockfighting rings because the big fish always have ties to drugs/illegal fire arms and even drug cartels! So its not really about a guy fighting a damn chicken! It comes down to money/drugs/illegal firearms! I keep it low profile do not call attention to your self or your property. Just a Words of wisdom coming from the horses mouth!

    The farm bill just passed for Ky. The bill now makes cockfighting or being a spectator at a cockfight a felony in the state of Kentucky. The land of the free is no longer free. May god be with us.

    Re: kentcuky felony cockfighting law passed

    the rooster men in our beloved USA should be well represented in any state, there are ties to illegal activities in ANY sport! but as long as we don't represent our sport well, we will still be categorized as low life crime and criminals! I do admire a little flicker of hope here in my home state as we are starting to organize shows that promote our hobby... not fighting though but grassroots-level chicken shows that showcase our birds... this is a good start imho
