Support The Sportsmanship in Hunting Act: H.R. 2210
On June 20, Animal Planet Investigates: Captive Hunting Exposed aired, revealing appalling undercover footage from a HSUS investigation into captive hunts. This investigation aired just as a bill was introduced in Congress, The Sportsmanship in Hunting Act (H.R. 2210), that cracks down on these facilities and also bans remote-controlled hunting over the Internet. Captive hunts are privately owned ranches where customers pay a fee to shoot semi-tame exotic mammals—even endangered species—for trophies. Some of these operations even offer “no kill, no pay” guarantees—eliminating any sportsmanship from the practice.
Many places that allow this sort of “hunting” prohibit the killing of big cats, such as Florida, but the facilities are often full of caged cats. Big cats end up being killed in cages or fenced areas by the game farm’s most trusted clients. YOU can put an end to all of it.
Please make a brief, polite phone call TODAY to your U.S. representative to urge his/her co-sponsorship of H.R. 2210. Look up your U.S. representative’s phone number. You can say: “I am a constituent, and I would like you to please co-sponsor The Sportsmanship in Hunting Act (H.R. 2210), that cracks down on captive hunting facilities.”
After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form below to automatically send a follow-up message to your U.S. representative. Congress receives a lot of email, so be sure to edit your message so it stands out.
