The Collapse of Louisiana’s Economy

Well…

It’s happened.

The last state to outlaw this bloody sport, is about to go into economic depression. Never-mind the hurricanes or anything like that. They’ve outlawed cockfighting, and it could mean the end of Louisiana’s economy.

But, don’t take my word for it, check this out:

“The combination of new federal and state laws has combined to sap Louisiana’s cockfighting industry, which supporters said eliminated what used to be a regular source of business for the state’s hotels, restaurants and feed stores.

Daughdrill, head of the Louisiana Gamefowl Breeders Association, said the number of large, active cockfighting pits has dropped from 20 last year to about six now. Membership in the association — breeders fans and the like — has plummeted roughly 90%, from 6,000 last year to 600.”

Oh, and did I also mention, it’s going to destroy their cultural heritage as well?

No?

Oh, well, yeah… that too.
