Help save California’s black bears!
From Big Wildlife, Los Padres Forest Watch, and The Humane Society of the United States:
“In January, the California Department of Fish and Game unveiled proposed changes to bear hunting regulations that would: allow an unlimited number of bears to be killed across California during the trophy hunting season; permit the use of high-tech global positioning equipment and “tip switches” on hound collars to make it easy to locate and kill a bear; open the first-ever bear hunting season in San Luis Obispo County and expand the trophy hunts in Modoc and Lassen counties; and significantly expand the hound training season, allowing hounds to harass bears nearly all year long.”
No, no, no, no! The California Fish and Game Commission should NOT allow this to happen.
