Important Hearing To Ban Hunting With Hounds
Speak Up For Dogs, Bears And Bobcats!
State Capitol, Sacramento, Tuesday June 26
Your voice is needed! California Senate Bill 1221, which would ban cruel "hounding," passed the Senate floor, thanks to IDA members' many calls and e-mails. SB 1221 now faces its biggest challenge in the Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26.
Hounding is a cruel practice where hunters use dogs to chase bears and bobcats for many miles until the exhausted animal either turns to fight or runs up a tree, only to be shot. This is incredibly inhumane and even many hunters consider hounding an "unfair chase" and unsportsmanlike.
The Assembly Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee is going to be a tough hurdle, and we need as many animal advocates as possible to fill the hearing room.The opposition will be out in force (there were over 700 at the last hearing) and we need to counter their numbers. If you haven’t come to the capitol for an exciting showdown, this is the one to see! You will get a chance to make comments in support of SB 1221.
If you wish to speak, you will probably get very limited time - all you will be able to say is your name, where you are from, and that you support the bill. Super easy, but super effective!
Please join us for the hearing at the Capitol!
Date: Tuesday, June 26
Time: The hearing is at 9 a.m., but we are expecting hundreds of opponents and we'll start lining up outside the room at 6 a.m. The earlier you arrive, the better your chances of getting in the room.Hunters are used to getting up early to shoot animals, so let’s show them that we can get up early to protect animals!
Where: Room 4202 in the State Capitol Building, Sacramento, California
