MIAMI BEACH (September 21, 2006) — Wrestler Hulk Hogan has a new opponent: those who organize animal fights. The Miami Beach resident sent a video message Thursday to all 435 members of the House of Representatives. In it, he says laws against dog fighting and cockfighting aren’t tough enough.

The Hulk slips into wrestling terminology in his message, saying offenders should be hit with a “felonious legdrop.”

The star of VH1’s “Hogan Knows Best” issued the message in cooperation with the Humane Society. The House is considering stricter animal fighting laws.
