Monterey County, California is a hot bed for illegal cockfighting--but the County was refusing to enforce its anti-cockfighting law. So we sued them.
According to our lawsuit, filed on behalf of Humane Farming Association (HFA) and SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK), failing to enforce anti-cockfighting laws perpetuates animal cruelty, the spread of disease, and deprives taxpayers of hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue from fees assessed on violators.
In response to our lawsuit, we forced the County to crackdown on cockfighting. We'll make sure of it--because we also reached an agreement, allowing us to monitor the County's progress.
