House Democrats urged to support animal fighting legislation

The House Democratic Policy Committee held a public hearing in Pittsburgh Wednesday to discuss animal fighting and heard testimony from animal welfare advocates urging them to support legislation Rep. Dom Costa (D-Allegheny) is reintroducing to make animal fighting a racketeering offense.

Costa, a former Pittsburgh police chief, first introduced the bill, HB 1197, in April of last year. It was referred to the House Judiciary Committee and has stayed there ever since. Costa brought forward a similar bill in the 2015-16 session.
