Mexico bans dogfighting nationwide
Animal advocates are celebrating the passage of a nationwide ban on dogfighting in Mexico.
Anton Aguilar, Humane Society International/Mexico director, said: “This reform is a big step in the right direction. We applaud both chambers of Congress for banning dogfighting nationwide. Dogfighting is terribly cruel, highly unpopular and strongly linked to organized crime. What is most important now is that the Senate passes a reform to the federal criminal code so that dogfighting is effectively penalized.”
