Last Wednesday, July 14th, the U.S. House voted to stop
federal funding for commercial and recreational trapping with
steel-jawed leghold traps on National Wildlife Refuges. This is good
news, but we need to call or email our senators right away and urge them
to vote on a similar bill which comes before them early this week.
Tell your Senators to support the Torricelli Amendment
to the Senate Interior Appropriations Bill, to stop federal funding for
steel-jawed leghold traps on National Wildlife Refuges.
Please call your Senators at 202-224-3121 or find their
email address by going to this page...

pointers on what to say in your email or call, please go to this page...
