California: Take Action to Stop the Trophy Hunting of Bobcats!

7.3.19After successfully making its way through the California Assembly, Assembly Bill 1254 is now set to be heard by the Senate Appropriations Committee. Your help is urgenlty needed to ensure the passage of AB 1254!

Introduced by Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager-Dove (D-Los Angeles), the bill creates a moratorium on the trophy hunting of the state's iconic bobcats. If enacted into law, the bill would make California the first state in the nation to ban the trophy hunting of bobcats.

Over the past decade alone, nearly 10,000 bobcats have been killed--the vast majority of which at the hands of ruthless trophy hunters. If left unchecked, the trophy hunting of California's bobcats could lead the population to extinction.

Once AB 1254 passes the Appropriations Committee, it will then have to pass a final vote on the Senate Floor before going to the desk of the governor to be signed into law.

Help save bobcats from trophy hunters!
