Some days it's just one depressing piece of news after another! Now I find out that the state of Mississippi is considering outlawing hawg-dawg fightin'.
What is that? some of you Yankees and sissies may be asking. Why, it's when you have a contest where a hawg fights with a dawg, of course!
Miss. may mull ban on hog-dog fighting Jackson Clarion-Ledger 01/20/05.
Hog-dog fighting was outlawed in Louisiana last year and the bloody sport is starting to move into south Mississippi, a Senate panel was told Wednesday.
Sen. Sidney Albritton, R-Picayune, said "rodeos" have already been reported in Pearl River and Walthall counties along the state line.
"Now that (Louisiana) illegalized it, they're moving north into Mississippi," said Albritton, whose district includes parts of Marion, Pearl River and Walthall counties.
The "rodeos" put pit bulls or other dogs into pens with wild hogs that are left mostly defenseless after their tusks have been sawed off. People bet on how long it will take the dogs to pin down the hogs.
Aw, man, now what are Chuckie fans going to have left to do on a Friday night?
