Appeals court affirms federal authority to ban cockfighting in US
News Release from Animal Wellness Foundation, December 23, 2021
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has affirmed a ruling of the
U.S. District Court for the District of Guam that Congress has the authority
to bar animal fighting throughout the United States, including in the
territories. The case was brought by Guam-based cockfighting enthusiast
“The challenges originating in Guam and Puerto Rico to the federal law
banning all animal fighting have been turned back by four federal courts and
also denied by the U.S. Supreme Court,” noted Wayne Pacelle, president of
Animal Wellness Action, which filed pleadings in these cases as an amicus
curiae participant. “This ruling comes just days before illegal cockfighting
derbies are set to commence in Guam at The Dome in Dededo, and this latest
court ruling is one more emphatic signal to the cockfighters to stop their
In October 2021, U.S. Supreme Court denied a writ of certiorari from
cockfighters and political leaders in Puerto Rico seeking relief from the
same federal law that bans cockfighting there. That pleading came to the
Supreme Court after two U.S. courts rejected the claims of cockfighting
interests and their local political allies in Puerto Rico.
“Linsangan’s evidence of cockfighting as a cultural practice both predating
and outside of American history does not show that cockfighting is
objectively deeply rooted in our Nation,” wrote the U.S. Court of Appeals in
rejecting the plaintiff’s claims. “Various U.S. jurisdictions have
restricted or prohibited animal fighting, including cockfighting, for
centuries.” The Court rejected all other claims from Mr. Linsangan,
including his First Amendment arguments.
In December 2018, Congress passed, and the President signed, the
Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018; that legislative package included a
provision applying all federal prohibitions against animal fighting to the
U.S. territories. Congress gave the territories a year to comply, with the
prohibition taking effect on December 20, 2019. That latest amendment to the
federal animal fighting law made it a felony to operate a cockfighting venue
or to participate in animal fights. Other provisions of the federal
anti-animal fighting law – such as prohibitions on transporting or receiving
fighting birds, trading in fighting implements, or being a spectator at an
animal fighting event — had already applied to the territories for years.
Mr. Linsangan appealed the decision of U.S. District Court Judge on Guam in
October 2020. “Congress has the undeniable authority to treat [the
territories of the United States] uniformly to the States and eliminate
live-bird fighting ventures across every United States jurisdiction,” wrote
Chief District Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood in the October 2020 ruling.
“The source of this authority rests primarily in the Commerce Clause and
Supremacy Clause and alternatively in the Territorial Clause.”
“As a legal jurisdiction of the United States, Guam cannot whimsically
opt-out of U.S. laws that forbid animal cruelty,” added Pacelle. “The
Congress has determined that cockfighting is barbaric and inhumane and the
federal courts have said the U.S. has the authority to take this action.
Animal Wellness Action, the Animal Wellness Foundation, and the Center for a
Humane Economy have participated as a friend of the court (amicus curiae) on
the side of the United States in all challenges to the 2018 U.S. law banning
