Humane Society gets firmer with Amazon's cocks

Fumes over Feathered Warriors

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

The Humane Society has its sights set on Amazon.com's cocks...again.

After suing the web retailer in February, in an attempt to crack down on the sale of cockfighting magazines, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has amended the suit. It claims that Amazon violates a second federal law as it continues to sell such titles as "The Feathered Warrior".

HSUS's original suit accused Amazon of violating the Animal Welfare Act, but the retailer refused to stop selling the magazines, filing federal papers that insist it has a legal right to do so. The Humane Society’s amendment, filed yesterday, claims that the company has also run afoul [Sorry - Ed] of the new Animal Fighting Prohibition Act, signed into law by President Bush on May 3.

"Amazon's decision to peddle illegal animal fighting paraphernalia is bad enough, but its decision to disobey and attempt to nullify a key provision of the federal Animal Welfare Act is patently outrageous," read a statement from Wayne Pacelle, HSUS president and CEO. "There is no constitutional right to engage in criminal activity, and Amazon should stop being the exclusive online vendor for an industry that perpetrates such blatant animal cruelty."

The Animal Fighting Prohibition Act prohibits the use of "any interstate instrumentality for commercial speech for purposes of promoting or in any other manner furthering an animal fighting venture."®
