Postal Service Bans Animal Fighting Publications

Minneapolis Animal Rights Examiner Kelley Diekman reports on the website that the U.S.Postal Service has banned animal fighting publications that violate the Animal Welfare Act.

According to Kelley, "The decision has been years in the making.In 2007 the Humane Society of the United States filed a suit against the United States Postal Service for their willingness to deliver magazines that support animal fighting and that violate the Animal Welfare Act. Earlier this year, a federal court in Washington D.C ordered the U.S. Postal Service to reconsider their current stand on what they mail. The result was the announcement on August 3, 2009 to put an end to the delivery of literature that supports illegal animal fights."
