We are asking you to make some urgent emails and calls TODAY to the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety regarding SB 366, the felony animal cruelty bill. There is only one day left to communicate with the Committee before they make their decision on SB 366.
The bill eliminates the requirement for bear and wolf hounders to carry rabies and license tags for their hunting hounds. A public hearing was held one day after the bill was released.
Please use this letter as a template to express your opposition to the bear hounding and baiting practices that are currently being allowed to take place with very little regulation on our public lands.
Currently, the state of Wisconsin pays out $2,500 each time a hound is killed to people who allow their dogs to run loose on public lands with no oversight and no permit required.
