Sheriffs Wonder About Enforcing New Cockfighting
Oklahoma City (AP) - The Oklahoma Sheriff's Association is getting calls from sheriffs across the state about how to enforce the new ban on cockfighting.
Oklahoma voters approved a state question on Tuesday prohibiting cockfighting. The measure will take effect tomorrow when election results are certified.
Sheriff's Association Director Larry Medina says several sheriffs don't understand the new law. Medina says Attorney General Drew Edmondson promises to have guidelines for law officers by Friday.
Love County Sheriff Joe Russell says he only has four deputies and will likely place a higher priority on fighting drug problems in his county.
