Online retailer no longer carries animal fighting material
The Humane Society of the United States filed a lawsuit accusing Amazon of violating District of Columbia consumer protection and animal welfare laws as well as federal animal fighting and cruelty laws by selling dogfighting videos and cockfighting magazines.
The lawsuit is now moot after two major cockfighting magazines folded and the third altered its content significantly.
The HSUS won this battle against those who would promote cruel animal fighting. The larger war against illegal animal fighting continues. If you suspect cockfighting or dogfighting near you, call The HSUS' animal fighting tip line: 1-877-TIP-HSUS. You may be eligible for a $5,000 reward.
