|Subject:||Canned Hunting Facilities|
|I will be re-introducing legislation (prior session SB 542) that would prohibit the procurement of animals from zoos for hunting purposes.
As you may know, canned hunting facilities provide individuals with the opportunity to hunt certain animals in an enclosed or specified area, usually for a fee. Since there are few restrictions regarding this practice, some of the animals that end up at these hunting facilities are obtained from zoos. Due to the fact that many zoo animals become domesticated after spending years in captivity, I believe it is wrong to treat them as game animals.
If you have questions about this legislation, please contact my Legislative Director, Jon Tew, at email@example.com or 610-768-4200.
Introduced as SB738
