C.A.S.H. Condemns the Passage of H.J. Res. 69
Article posted by C.A.S.H. Committee To Abolish Sport Hunting

From Joe Miele, President of CASH

On April 4, 2017 President Trump showed the country that he will side with the recreational hunting industry over the interests of the American people who demand that wildlife be protected from obscene and unnecessary cruelty. On that day, the president signed H.J. Res. 69 into law, an action that allows the State of Alaska to begin killing black bear cubs and their mothers in their hibernation dens. Hunters and trappers may now also bait bears and wolves before slaughtering them from airplanes over 76 million acres of Alaska’s U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service lands.

C.A.S.H. condemns the action taken by the president and senate republicans against our native wildlife. We have entered a new age where science and ethics are pushed aside so greed and profits can take the lead. Wildlife watching and other humane forms of outdoor recreation are far more popular than the violence and suffering of sport hunting, but the powerful weapons lobbies who pay millions for an audience with congress and the president currently rule the day. Hopefully this philosophy of money before everything else will be reversed before it is too late for wildlife.

S. J. Res. 18 was supported by every Republican in the Senate and opposed by every Democrat. You can find the results of the vote here: http://tinyurl.com/mm4b5mp.
