Michigan law calls for tougher penalties for animal fighting

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new law in Michigan will mean tougher penalties for people participating in dogfighting or cockfighting.  The bill was signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder earlier this month.

Under the law, those types of animal fighting charges can be prosecuted as a criminal enterprise just like a drug or prostitution ring.  That could mean penalties of up to 20 years in prison and fines upwards of 100,000-dollars.
