Kentucky residents: please vote NO on House Bill 1

Kentucky residents will be voting next week on House Bill 1, which would make hunting and trapping a right, thereby protecting the use of “traditional” hunting and trapping methods. If this amendment is passed, Kentucky would never be able to ban cruel traps, nor would its cities and counties be able to prohibit bowhunting!

Steel-jaw, body-gripping, and snare traps are exceedingly cruel. Even rubber-coated traps cause immense pain and injury! Body-gripping traps crush bones and slowly suffocate animals, while snares jerk tightly around victims’ necks, faces, bodies, or limbs. With all these traps, terrified animals, in their frantic struggles to escape will commonly injure themselves further, snapping bones or tearing flesh—some animals even chew off their own limbs to break free. Bowhunting is also horribly inhumane. Bowhunters often spend hours following bloody tracks before finding wounded deer. Many are not found, and their deaths are slow (taking several weeks in some cases) and painful.

Please vote “No!” on this hunting and trapping bill (H.B. 1), and please forward this alert widely!


we are caught in your traps,
impaled by your bows,
in more pain and torment
as we die slow,
on HBB 1,
please please
VOTE NO!!!

      Fishing and hunting is already allowed. This ammendment isn’t proving anything and will stop wildlife refuges from being built on public land…..
