~~ ACTION ALERT ~~
SUPPORT INDIANA HB1135 to PROHIBIT HUNTING FOXES AND COYOTES WITH DOGS IN ENCLOSED AREAS

HB1135, a bill that will prevent hunters from killing foxes or coyotes using dogs within an area that is enclosed by an artificial barrier preventing the natural ingress or egress of a fox or coyote, has been submitted to the Indiana Committee on Natural Resources. Support for the bill is needed if it is to be sent to the House for a vote.

This bill will eliminate a practice that is clearly cruel and inhumane, and therefore it is one that we feel should be supported by wildlife advocates. Please take a moment to contact the members of the Indiana Committee on Natural Resources and urge them to support the bill.

Sample Letter:

The Honorable Sean Eberhart, Chairman
Committee on Natural Resources
Indiana House of Representatives
200 W. Washington St.
Indianapolis, IN 46204-2728

February 21, 2011

Dear Chairman Eberhart:

I am respectfully asking for you to support HB1135, the bill to prohibit fox or coyote hunting with dogs within an enclosed area.

Because such activities have absolutely no conservation value and because millions of Indiana residents see them as being cruel to helpless wildlife, I support this bill and encourage your fellow members of the Committee on Natural Resources to support the bill and pass it on to the full House for a vote.

Sincerely,.
