Arizona House moves to ban free animals as prizes

PHOENIX — Businesses would not be able to give away animals as prizes
under a proposed state law moving forward in the Arizona House of
Representatives.

A House committee unanimously advanced a measure Wednesday that would ban live
animals as prizes in contests or games and at amusement venues.

The provision would not apply to goldfish, pet stores or agricultural
operations.

Republican Rep. John Kavanagh is behind the measure. He says his wife
suggested the law after she learned about a local fair that gave out live
animals.
