California: Your Help Is Urgently Needed to Ban the Trophy Hunting of Bobcats!

7.3.19UPDATE: This action is now closed. AB 1254 passed the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee on July 9.

On May 23, 2019, California Assembly Bill 1254 passed the Assembly Floor by a 54-21 vote (five members did not vote) and has now advanced to the Senate.

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 killedthe 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.

Having passed the Assembly Floor, the bill must now make its way through the California Senate. AB 1254 will be heard by the Senate Committee on Natural Resources and Water on July 9th. Your help is urgently needed to ensure the passage of this bill!

Help save bobcats from trophy hunters!
