It means nothing. There is no enforcement in the VI so cock fighting will continue as usual like everything else.

 

If anything, payoffs might have to increase a bit.

Stacy Plasket believes it's "our cultural heritage" and opposed the ban.  Cruelty is not cultural.

CONGRESS MOVES TO BAN COCKFIGHTING IN USVI, PR

"Cockfighting, which has a thriving industry in Puerto Rico, is said to employ 27,000 people and generates $18 million annually."

Well there is a link above but apparently it doesn't go bold or change color unless you change it yourself.

Cue the "it's our culture" whiners, wasn't it "culture" for the Romans to feed Christians to the lions for sport?

It may have been culture at one time but we evolve. sadly if it is banned it will continue underground and not be enforced. Kind of like the dog fights that known police officers attend.

Out of curiosity i went to the cock fight arena in San Juan years ago. It was barbaric what I saw but the arena itself was OK, not like the nasty looking ghetto look of the STX ring. Never went inside the STX ring but it looks like a dump from the outside.
