storywillienelsonap.jpgCountry music star Willie Nelson is lending support to a dogfighting bill that would help tighten laws throughout the state of Georgia. A national animal-welfare organization, Best Friends Animal Society, produced an ad that has Nelson speaking into a camera while “Georgia on My Mind” plays in the background. From the article,

“‘Dogfighting is against the law in Georgia, but the laws are so weak, the beautiful state of Georgia has become a haven for dogfighters from around the country,’ he says. The bill would make it a felony for anyone to sell, trade or transport dogs for the purpose of dogfighting.”

Supporters of the new bill (which has already cleared the state Senate) hope to have the ad in full circulation around the December 10th sentencing for suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick. The former star footballer has pleaded guilty to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge.

Rock on, Willie!
