    HSUS attacking CA bear and bobcat hunters again

    Bill to Ban Hunting Introduced in California

    Fresh off their failed attempt to play politics with the California Fish and Game Commission, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has now teamed up with California State Senator Ted Lieu (D-Redondo Beach) to target the states bear and bobcat hunters.
    Senate Bill 1221, introduced by Senator Lieu, originally dealt with air pollution. Instead, the senator is proposing an amendment to ban hound hunting for bears and bobcats at the behest of the nation’s largest animal rights organization, HSUS. The bill will likely be referred to the Senate Natural Resources Committee next week where it will be heard possibly as soon as April 10th.
    In addition to an attack on hunters, the bill is also an attack on public safety as California black bear numbers have more than doubled over the past 30 years. Coupled with California’s dramatic increases in population and urbanization, it is increasingly important that state wildlife officials have every tool necessary to control populations. Hunting with hounds is an accepted, effective, challenging and humane method of hunting. Twenty-nine states have a huntable population of black bears, 17 of which permit hunting with hounds.
    “Anti-hunters have tried several times to ban hunting with dogs in California, but all hunters realize this is all part of their agenda to ban hunting one step at a time,” said Evan Heusinkveld, USSA director of state services. “That’s why it is so important that all California hunters contact their state senator to oppose SB 1221.”
    USSA is working with the Masters of Foxhounds Association, California Houndsmen for Conservation, the California Outdoor Heritage Alliance, and others to defeat SB 1221.
    Take Action! California sportsmen must speak out today and prevent anti-hunters from driving this debate. Call your state senator and tell them to oppose SB 1221. To find your senators contact information, visit the USSA Legislative Action Center at www.ussportsmen.org/lac.

    California Hunters! Listen up! DONT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU LIKE IT DID US IN OREGON. Since the bear and Cougar hounding ban came into effect here in 1996,m the population of Bear and Cougar has EXPLODED. Now they are predatingheavy on the remaining mule deer herds, the Bighorn Sheep and elk. Used to never see them out hunting. Now there are at least 15-20 killed every hear in parts of Oregon just from hunting happening to see them more and more.

    GET ACTIVE,,,,,,,, GET INFORMED, let YOUR voice be heard! YOU are the ones that FUND the state for wildlife NOT the HSUS!

    They already got a complete ban on cougar hunting here, with the expected result. Cougars are everywhere now.



    They wont stop at simply banning the use of hounds for bear. Their stated goal is to completely stop ALL hunting in California.

    I urge all California sportsmen to write your state senator. Let your voice be heard.
