(725 ILCS 5/124B-900)
The General Assembly finds that the forfeiture of real property that is used or intended to be used in connection with any show, exhibition, program, or other activity featuring or otherwise involving a fight between an animal and any other animal or human or involving the intentional killing of any animal for the purpose of sport, wagering, or entertainment will have a significant beneficial effect in deterring the rising incidence of those activities within this State, as well as other crimes that frequently occur in partnership with animal fighting, such as illegal gambling, possession of narcotics, and weapons violations.
