State Capital Bureau

Missouri voters can decide November third whether Missouri chickens will be allowed to continue to fight each other.

Curt Holden reports from Jefferson City.

Supporters and opponents of Missouri cockfighting are arguing about language in Proposition A that would make cockfighting in Missouri a class D felony.

Executive Director of the Conservation Federation of Missouri Dierdre Hirner says the Proposition A language isn't specific enough.

Missourians Against Cockfighting Campaign Manager Barbara Gray says Missouri voters should pass Prop A so that Missouri children won't be able to attend cockfights and receive the message that cockfighting is okay.
