Sacramento, CA: Protect Wildlife from Hounding - April 24 State Capitol
Speaking up for animals can be challenging. Yet, because of the dedication of our members, supporters, and other animal advocates we've been able to make great strides for animals in California.
April 24 is your opportunity to be a dedicated voice for animals and continue to help us make a difference! On this day, the Senate Natural Resources Committee will be holding a hearing on important legislation (SB 1221) to prohibit the use of packs of hounds to pursue bears and bobcats. SB 1221, by State Senator Ted Lieu, is a long overdue reform. Currently, a minority of states allow chasing down of bears with hounds and California is one of them.
Please join other animal advocates and humane Californians on the morning of April 24 to say "I support SB 1221". The houndsmen will turn out in force for this hearing, and those who are among the 83% of California voters who support a ban on the unsporting, inhumane and unnecessary practice need to be represented. Each person showing up counts. The Humane Society of the United States' California state director will be there and happy to help make your advocacy experience a positive one. RSVP today to lend your voice for animals and make a difference in California! Contact Jennifer Fearing if you have additional questions.
