Animals rights activists rally at the statehouse for stronger legislation to crackdown on cockfighting.
Cockfighting is illegal in all 50 states, but the fine is pretty minimal.
A bill working its way through the legislature would increase the penalty for cockfighting from a maximum of fifty-dollars up to six-thousand dollars.
Animal rights groups are also pushing a bill that would help keep low-cost spay and neuter clinics open in Alabama.
