A Quick Email/Call to Your Senator to Oppose the Sportsmen’s Act

Tell Your Senator to Oppose The Sportsmen’s Act 2013 (S. 1335)

“Sportsmen” have nothing to do with either sports or fairness. If this Sportsmen’s Act 2013 (S. 1335) — extensively financed by the atrocious trophy hunting Safari Club International — passes, it would allow hunting AND trapping in designated wilderness areas, allow “volunteers” to help in the killing of so-called “excess” animals on federal land, including National Parks, increase the share of federal lands turned into shooting ranges, and legalize the transporting of bows through national parks and the importation of “trophies” from polar bear kills in Canada.
Wild animals have a hard enough life as it is, trying to coexist with a species as selfish and short-sighted as humans, with the attendant threats of poaching, hunting, habitat loss, and pollution, without even safe national parks and wilderness areas being opened to yet more killing.
Look at that fox again. You cannot tell me anything in your life is more important than 5 minutes to make a call and write a quick email and/or paper letter. Come on.

About Franziska

I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years now, since adopting my first dog, and vegan for more than 10. Why? The simplest and truest answer is that I love animals, and knowing what happens to them just to satisfy selfish human desires makes consuming any animal products impossible. I am a NARN Board member because its goals, beliefs, and ethics are mine, and because nothing is ever done that doesn't have only the animals at heart. There are no politics, no factions, no arguments, no personal motives. As for my favorite quote, it is beyond a doubt Ralph Waldo Emerson's "The purpose of life is not to be happy. The purpose of life is to be useful. To be useful, compassionate, honorable, and to have it matter that you lived."
