Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 10, 2013 02:14 PM
From: Senator Daylin Leach
To: All Senate members
Subject: Canned Hunting Facilities
I will be re-introducing legislation 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.

Introduced as SB542
