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
POINTS TO MAKE

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