The formula to protect wild animals from cruelty is simple: anything that the Safari Club International (SCI) supports MUST be opposed.

The SCI, an atrocious trophy hunter organization,  is currently lobbying heavily for S 1335, sponsored by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). If passed, the Act would make hunting and trapping a priority to be considered on federal lands-public lands that are owned and funded by us, the Public.

The bill would allow hunting and trapping in designated wilderness areas, allow “volunteers” to help in the killing of so-called “excess” animals on Federal land, including National Parks, increase the share of federal lands turned into shooting ranges, and legalize the transporting of bows through national parks and the importation of “trophies” from polar bears kills in Canada.

Please us the form HERE to contact your Senator immediately and tell her/him to vote “NO” on the Sportsmen’s Act 2013 (S. 1335). The threats our wildlife face come from many directions- loss of habitat, trophy hunters, poaching, conflicts with humans and or human-based activities, as well as the hardships of living in the wild as predator or prey. The last thing we need right now is to open our national parks or wilderness areas that currently do not allow hunting to more killing.

there is nothing sportsmenlike about the act of killing,
we the compassionate public find ss 1335
barbaric and chilling.
the sci and its bloodlusting crew,
need to leave animals alone and
find something better to do!

    Thank You Stacey and thank you Buddy for bringing this to my attention, sign the petition and send it off to Senator Patrick Toomey of Pennsylvania who is good at helping the animals so I’m confident he will vote no.

    Lisa Murkowski sponsored a bill which would kill animals. A profound example of statesmanship; leadership rarely seen in the annuls of history.

        Stacey,
        Yes, and it’s annals. I rarely us it but this bill somehow caused me to react like that. It’s like, what the hell is going on in Washington when bills are actually being written to allow the slaughter of animals. How did this even get on the agenda?
        Thanks,
        Jerry

          I thought it was. 🙂 I HATE this bill and am ashamed it is even being considered. Animals are always the victim of greed and fun and whatever else spurred the initiation of this. I can only hope it will be defeated. Thank you for your compassion and comments, Jerry, it’s much appreciated.
