APPEARS IN Hunting

Your Support is Needed to Save Pennsylvania’s Sporting Tradition!

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Please Continue to Contact Your State Senator! 

Although expected to be considered this week, the Pennsylvania Senate did not vote on Senate Bill 626.  However, there are indications that it will be considered next week.  This legislation is an unjustified attack by “animal rights” extremists and simply put, Senate Bill 626 would criminalize and ban organized bird shoots in Pennsylvania.

Your legislators are claiming that they have not heard from you!  Make no mistake, if they are not hearing from you, it means they are only hearing from extremists who want to destroy one of the Keystone State’s traditions.  We need to make our voices heard.

Organized bird shooting is a traditional, international shooting sport widely practiced in over thirty-five states across the nation, not just in Pennsylvania, as opponents falsely claim.  For over a century, shoots have been held in Pennsylvania by law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts, hunters, and sportsmen who would not tolerate an activity that would constitute cruelty to animals.

Radical national "animal rights" groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), have organized and funded efforts in Pennsylvania and around the country to ban this longstanding traditional shooting sport. Make no mistake, this is not just about banning organized bird shoots, but banning all hunting species by species.  Here are a few examples of HSUS activities:

* Led a 2006 ballot campaign to ban dove hunting in Michigan (contributing $1.6 million to the effort)
* Funded ballot initiative in 2004 to ban traditional bear hunting in Maine
* Successfully lobbied for the cancellation of the 2006 New Jersey black bear hunt
* Oppose hunting on National Wildlife Refuges
* Oppose state pheasant stocking programs in Pennsylvania and across the country

Please continue to contact your state Senator TODAY and urge him or her to protect Pennsylvania’s sporting traditions and OPPOSE SB 626.  For help identifying your state Senator and their contact information, please click here
