Subject: Update on Floyd and Guy Boudreaux- Louisiana dogfighters finally charged due to public outcry
To Everyone Who Took Action to Our Plea:
Here is an update on the Boudeaux family of felons. Tuesday around 4pm a plea was sent to the public regarding Floyd and Guy Boudreaux, who were busted in March 11, 2005 for felony counts of dogfighting and animal cruelty. The Lafayette, Louisiana District Attorney's office has allowed them to walk and had not yet filed charges 10 months after the bust (hmmm). However, within 24 hours of Tuesday's email the DA announced they would be prosecuting. Your calls and letters made the difference!
Here is an excerpt from an email Laura Maloney, Executive Director of LASPCA sent on Wednesday:
"Floyd Boudreaux is being charged with 48 counts of dog fighting, two counts possession of schedule III drugs. Guy Boudreaux is being charged as principal to 48 counts of dog fighting. No trial date has been set. Please extend my deepest gratitude for all of those who wrote or called the DA. Their voice made the difference!!!! Thanks so much for your help!! ".
"he is also a champion cockfighter, but sadly, cockfighting is legal in LA. We were unable to seize his birds. We're going to shoot for outlawing cockfighting this upcoming legislative session"
Below is more background material on the case. Again, thanks for your participation and in making the difference. We will keep you updated on this case so you may continue to help the state of LA see this case through to prosecution and make sure that they really do go to trial.

Please note: The state has not pressed to force closure of his dog breeding business and bar he or his son from owning, breeding or have anything to do with animals. His business is still advertising and shipping out dogs. Though it is difficult to close him down without a conviction perhaps a civil cease and desist order can be obtained. The DA has not done anything about the business.
Kennels still offering Boudreuax bloodline dogs "all of course are not sold for illegal purposes". Form your own opinion. Please check out these links:
Crossposted. Take a good look at that fellas. What about the kennel advertising big blue currs......damn straight, they are being watched. If you think because you dont own little or "gamey" type dogs you dont need to fight to defend your rights, your dead wrong! "Bluffs" are the same in these idiots eyes, and we are all going to fall together if we allow these injustices to continue. Theres no stopping for these people, and even owning a pedigree with one name on it is enough to get you watched and labeled a dog-fighter. How many of ours dogs go back to Boudreaux?
