"B" is for Bear Wrestling ( I kid you not)
Bear wrestling is one of the Cruelty to Animals Acts that Louisiana has so diligently passed. Why La. has not outlawed cockfighting is beyond me, but hey as long as we are making some forward progress. I mean, we no longer allow our residents to wrestle with bears for sport or entertainment. And for all of you gamblers headed to Louisiana, be warned: No more wagering on bear wrestling matches.
This act covers all aspects related to this event, from the actual owner, handler and trainer of the wrestling bear to the owner of the location where the event is held. So, if becoming part of the sport of bear wrestling is what you have in mind for your chosen career, you better read on to see what faces you in the state of Louisiana.
The law and penalties can be read here: Louisiana Revised Statutes
In Louisiana, bear wrestling is defined as a "contest between one or more persons and a bear for the purpose of fighting or engaging in a physical altercation".
Bottom line: Leave bear wrestling to Da Bears.
