Mary Cummins, Animal Advocates against dog hunting of bobcats, bears

Ban dog hunting of bears, bobcats. Senate bill SB 1221

Today, Tuesday, April 24, the California Senate Committee on Natural Resources will be holding a hearing on Senate Bill 1221 which bans hound hunting of bears and bobcats in the state. Hounding is an inhumane and unsporting practice where trophy hunters use packs of radio-collared dogs to chase down bears. Often the houndsman then shoots the terrified animal off a tree branch.

Additionally, it leads to dog welfare problems and drains animal sheltering resources. Dogs may be struck by vehicles, die as a result of dehydration or confrontations with wildlife, or be abandoned at local animal shelters.

Please make a brief, polite phone call to your California state senator, Fran J. Pavley (916) 651-4023 , urging support for SB 1221. Be sure to leave a message detailing your support for SB 1221 if you call outside office hours. Then, send a follow-up message.

Thanks,

Mary Cummins
