US Friends, Urge U.S. House Committees to Oppose Cruel Act

July 9, 2012

Two U.S. House committees (the Committee on Agriculture and the Committee on Natural Resources) are considering the Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act (H.R. 2834), which, if passed, would open federal public lands to hunting—including extremely cruel bowhunting. It would also require federal public land management agencies to make decisions that support fishing and hunting opportunities, to lease lands for shooting ranges, and to designate lands for recreational shooting activities. Your compassionate voice is desperately needed!

Please e-mail the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources using this Web form


Dear Representative,

Please oppose the Recreational Fishing and Hunting Heritage and Opportunities Act (H.R. 2834).  Approving this bill will cause unimaginable suffering amongst animals, including vicious bowhunting, the promotion of which is both cruel and unacceptable.  Animals are inherently sentient and possess the capacity for thought and emotion, including contentment, loneliness, fear, and agony. All animals, human and non-human, experience the desire to live free from exploitation and suffering and fear the manifestation of death.

Humans have adopted dangerous constructs of speciesism, the prejudicial regard of non-human species, to validate the brutality inflicted upon them. Using this manufactured status of superiority, humans have sanctioned the use of animals as commodities, regarding them only as products to benefit our goals and needs. We embrace inequity to justify our treatment of animals, which is mere savagery concealed in socially-approved descriptions.  Please note that I will vote accordingly.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important appeal.


this is the 21st century…
wake up, animals are not
your enemies.
you do not need to hunt
them to stay alive.
leave our wild ones alone
to live and thrive
