Urgent: s.2363 is a very dangerous hunter/trapper/hounder power grab that takes over our federal public lands for trapping and killing our wildlife, shooting galleries, roads and ATV’s and traffic where wilderness and wildlife had been protected for all of us. It legalizes import of trophy – killed polar bears and more.
The U.S. Senate will soon be voting on the dangerous “Sportsmen’s Act”, a radical handout to extreme trophy hunting groups.
In a single swoop, this legislation would open millions of acres of public lands — including sensitive Wilderness Areas — to hunting and fur trapping, at the expense of other land users and endangered and threatened species. It would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from even considering the issue of toxic lead ammunition which poisons wildlife and the environment. And it would permit the latest in a series of import allowances for sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada, encouraging trophy hunters to escalate the killing of threatened species around the globe.
