Don’t Feed the Bears - Michigan

The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance and other extremist anti-animal groups are pressuring the Michigan House of Representatives to pass a measure that would put the state legislature on the record as opposing HR 1472, the federal “Don’t Feed the Bears” anti-bear baiting bill.

Michigan House Resolution 82, sponsored by Rep. Dale Sheltrown would petition the U.S. House of Representatives to oppose HR 1472.  Allied with the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance in this effort are extremist groups such as the Michigan Bear Hunters Association, Michigan Bow Hunters Association, Michigan Hunting Dog Federation and Michigan State United Coonhunters Association – all groups that promote the violent slaughter of wildlife.

WHAT YOU MUST DO

Michigan residents who care about their state’s wild bears need to contact their state representatives immediately and ask that they OPPOSE Michigan HR 82.

 

POINTS TO MAKE

Bear baiting is a cruel practice that violates every element of “fair chase” that hunters use when making the claim that hunting is a legitimate sport.

Forty-one states already prohibit this barbaric practice, and HR 1472 is needed to make this prohibition nationwide.
