Post Office Will Issue Animal Fighting Rules

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The Postal Service plans to prohibit the use of U.S. mail to advertise an animal for use in animal fighting, or to advertise “a knife, a gaff, or any other sharp instrument attached, or designed or intended to be attached, to the leg of a bird” in animal fighting.”



The new rules, which would align the Postal Service’s rules with those in the Animal Welfare Act, apply to “any event, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce” involving a fight “conducted or to be conducted” between at least two animals.
