Is KY legalizing dog-fighting? (op-ed)

In today’s BarkPost op-ed, our own Levity Tomkinson shares insight from recent events in the Kentucky Senate which can be fairly described as shady, and which beg the question Is Kentucky legalizing dog-fighting?

Senate majority leaders tout their committee sub as a “compromise” between animal advocates and the hunting lobby. Yet with the exception of hunting lobby representatives, the Ag Committee excluded everyone (even criminal prosecutors) from the secret negotiations that gave birth to the committee sub. And since prosecutors subsequently stated that the new language would make the job of prosecuting dog-fighters extremely onerous, many are now wondering whether the committee sub is an attempt to undercut federal law and invite dog-fighters from 49 other states to bring their business to Kentucky.
