Today, Bush signed into law the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act. This will help law enforcement crack down on cockfighting, dogfighting and other types of animal fighting. The law is effective immediately and will penalize any type of interstate commerce related to animal fighting activities. This law should also stop the transporting of fighting animals across country borders and should deter people in the United States from exporting animals to other countries that engage in these animal fighting acts. Punishment for violation of this law may include up to three years in jail and up to a $250,000 fine.
