Survey claims most Guam residents oppose cockfighting

Washington-based groups Animal Wellness Foundation and Animal Wellness Action have released topline polling data from a “comprehensive, statistically valid” survey of Guam residents about animal cruelty and cockfighting, with the survey claiming to reveal deep and broad support for an upgrade of the territory’s anti-cruelty law and for the federal ban on cockfighting.

The poll, conducted by Market Research & Development, Inc. sampled 400 Guamanians, over a two-week period which concluded on December 12th. The results of the poll indicate:

· Nine out of ten Guamanians (89%) are concerned about the mistreatment of animals on Guam.
· About 90% believe animal cruelty laws on Guam should be strengthened.
· Only 7% of Guamanians have been to a cockfight in the last year.
· Only two out of ten (21%) Guamanians favor cockfighting while 60% oppose it.
· More than half (52%) of residents are not aware of the federal ban on cockfighting scheduled to go into effect on December 20.
· When it comes to the federal ban on cockfighting, 60% favor the ban and only 25% oppose it.

”Our poll results reveal that Guamanians are concerned about animal cruelty on Guam in overwhelming numbers,” said Jay R. Merrill, president of Guam-based Market Research & Development, Inc., in a news release. “Nearly everybody polled wants to see Guam’s animal cruelty laws strengthened. In addition, a solid majority oppose cockfighting and support the federal ban.
