Save Our Bobcats

There’s a boom in bobcat trapping in California – and¬†you can help stop it.¬†

Escalating demand for bobcat pelts, particularly in China and Russia, is driving up fur prices. That’s putting California’s wild bobcats at risk.

A new state law would protect our bobcats from being trapped and sold for their pelts. The California Assembly already voted yes on A.B. 1213, the Bobcat Protection Act.Thank you for contacting your Assembly member in support of this bill.

Now you can help the bobcat again. The state Senate is preparing to vote on the bill. Please urge your senator to support the Bobcat Protection Act.

In California, it is still legal to trap and kill an unlimited number of bobcats during the trapping season, from November through January.

The number of bobcats trapped and killed has doubled since 2010. Sadly, the trend shows no signs of slowing.

This is why IFAW supports the passage of the Bobcat Protection Act, introduced in the California legislature by Assembly member Richard Bloom of Santa Monica.

If passed, the Bobcat Protection Act would prohibit trapping in the lands directly adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park. It would also require the California Fish and Game Commission to, among other progressive actions, adopt regulations prohibiting bobcat trapping adjacent to other national or state parks, monuments and wildlife refuges.

We are almost there. But we need your help now more than ever.

After being passed by the full Assembly in May and a key Senate committee in June, the bill is now headed to the Senate floor for a vote.

Please urge your senator to vote “Yes” on A.B. 1213, the Bobcat Protection Act.

Thank you,

Jeffrey Flocken
North American Regional Director, IFAW

Best Zoo Expose Ever

It certainly stands to reason that similar issues have tortured tigers in zoos and I would love to see you expose that.  It is my understanding that there is not one purebred Bengal tiger in America because of the craze to inbreed tigers to produce white coats.
