Lawmakers are considering stiffer penalties for cockfighting, changing the activity from a misdemeanor to a felony for repeat offenders. But cockfighting does have its supporters.

On Tuesday at 12:15 p.m., cock fighting supporter Tim Fitzgerald, Carl Arky from the Humane Society of Utah and Tribune reporter Jim Dalrymple join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the cock fighting tradition and the movement to outlaw the practice.
