HARRISBURG – Bipartisan legislation has been introduced to allow an already established grant program to also fund law enforcement activities to address animal fighting. House Bill 2328 would permit some of a $2 million annual transfer under the gambling law to be used to focus on animal fighting. Currently, the transfer is used to provide law enforcement with grants to combat unlawful gambling. Under the bill, the money also could be used to battle violations of the animal fighting law. Bill supporters say animal fighting rings are a serious problem in PA and perpetrators go to great lengths to hide their activities, which makes prosecuting them much more challenging and expensive. The bill has been referred to the PA House Gaming Oversight Committee.
