We're very glad to announce that The League of Humane Voters (LOHV) has endorsed Bill S6644 that Senator George Latimer introduced the Geese and Turkey Protection Law.
'Memorandum of Support for S6644/A08934 - 'Severely Limit killing and removal of wild geese and turkeys'
Requires the NYS DEC to hold a Public Hearing in a community where an
action to remove Canada Geese or Turkeys is contemplated. It would limit the
number of permits the DEC may give out, mandate that humane alternatives be
provided, and prevent carcasses from such a removal from being turned over
to food pantries for human consumption.' (More info on website)
Please thank Senator Latimer for introducing this dynamic, comprehensive bill. It will go a long way toward stopping the rampant USDA slaughters in NYS by recognizing our rights as citizens and taxpayers to be notified in advance of 'culls' and be permitted to have public meetings and input into this unnecessary, cruel use of our tax dollars.
