Great News for Mountain Lions

NO MORE UNNECESSARY KILLINGS!

Thanks to all of you, landmark lion protection legislation became reality today when California Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 132.

This is a first of its kind piece of legislation built on decades of scientific knowledge to define exactly what “imminent threat to public health and safety” means in regards to mountain lions.  It requires the use of nonlethal procedures for dealing with those lions that come into contact with humans, yet do not meet the threshold of imminent threat.

SB 132 also gives the California Department of Fish and Wildlife the authority to partner with qualified individuals and NGOs to assist them in carrying out these new duties.Photo of lion kitten playing with feather.

This victory belongs to all of you that contacted your legislator or the Governor.  We appreciate your help!
