Kent Greene said we could share this letter he sent to the Illinois Governor. Please feel free to use in your efforts to ban bobcat hunting.
Please veto SB 106 / HB 352 a bill to allow over hunting of Illinois bobcats.
I photograph wildlife, including bobcats. Below video was shot in a SW Florida swamp while sitting on a bicycle. On another occasion, I talked quietly to a Bobcat and it fell asleep while I was filming.
I hunted in deep forests (PA/VA) 50 years and saw one bobcat. Killing these animals outdoors is no more difficult than shooting them in a petting zoo. Decide for yourself whether this is a sport.
