City Paper is not for tourists
Media reports on Michael Vick‘s indictment on charges related to running a dog-fighting operation invariably mention that yes, dog fighting is illegal, and yes, it’s a felony in 48 states.
I’ve never seen an organized dogfight, but since reading A Feast of Snakes by Harry Crews a few years back, I’ve spent more than a normal amount of time trying to locate one.
According to a Humane Society fact sheet, a person’s best bet might be Idaho. In Idaho, running and watching a dogfight is a misdemeanor, as it is in Wyoming. But in Idaho, unlike Wyoming, possession of dogs for fighting is also legal.
In both states, however, stashing weed in your water bottle remains against the law.
