California Bill Would Issue Tags for Hunting Mountain Lions
Thursday, February 10, 2005
A new bill in California takes the first step in properly managing California`s mountain lion population.AB 24, introduced by Assemblyman Maze, would require that the California Department of Fish and Game conduct a lottery to issue tags that allow the holder to hunt mountain lions.The Department would issue two tags in every county that has an established mountain lion population.Mountain lion hunting has been banned in California since 1990, when emotion and junk science was used to persuade the public to ban hunting of the species.Since that time the population has exploded and mountain lions have been spotted in residential areas where they have attacked household pets and in a few cases, humans.AB 24 would be the first step in giving wildlife management decisions back to the professional biologists in the Department of Fish and Game.Unfortunately, the ballot measure that banned mountain lion hunting also requires a 4/5 vote of the legislature to change the status of the species. Please contact your Assemblyman and respectfully urge him/her to support this bill.
