Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Mark Kirk (R-IL), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), and Scott Brown (R-MA) have introduced S. 1947, a companion measure to H.R. 2492, the Animal Fighting Spectator Act. The bill would make knowingly attending an animal fight punishable by fines and up to one year in prison (see AWI Quarterly, Fall 2011).
