Oklahoma Cockfighting Ban

NPR's John Burnett reports that although Oklahomans voted this month to outlaw cockfighting in their state, some lawmen are refusing to enforce the new ban. The practice of setting fighting chickens against each other and betting on the bloody outcome is lucrative, and in several counties there are legal challenges to the ban.
