Good morning senators I have sent you to laws of Utah and Idaho one would become a law if the bill passes one is the law in Idaho the main difference is I am trying to bring across is Utah law is stomping on my civil rights to be able to raise whatever kind of chickens I would like the Utah law would have the right to bring a so-called self proclaimed experts such as John Goodman the convicted terrorist and say my chickens are game fowl and kill them and then go whoops well there dead now nothing we can do
Idaho law it very clear on this you can raise whatever kind of chickens for whatever reason you would like on your property
This bill in my opinion goes way way past the so called intention of animal fighting and would be one more magic silver bullet in the animal extremis guns to wipe all animal use in America
