Is Dog Fighting Illegal?

Yes. If you own a dog or other animal trained for fighting, have trained your dog or other dogs for dog fighting, accommodate dog fighting on your property or gamble on dog fights you will be guilty of a felony. If you breed or sell dogs which you know are used for dog fighting, attend a dog fighting event, or help transport or possess any equipment used in dog fighting events, you will be guilty of a felony, but a felony requiring a smaller fine than for those offenses listed above.
