Senate Judiciary approves bill targeting animal fighting

(Columbia-AP) March 14, 2006 - Legislation that targets staged animal fights is heading to the Senate floor.

The bill approved Tuesday by the Senate Judiciary Committee started out as an effort to clarify state law and get rid of hog-dog fighting. But it was changed in a subcommittee to cover any contest involving dogs that harm or kill animals so their owners can make money.

The bill does not outlaw coon or hog hunting.
