California Fish and Game Department has announced plans to expand the number of black bears allowed to be killed by hunters. If approved, the Department's proposal will:

  • allow an unlimited number of bears to be killed across California during the hunting season;
  • permit the use of high-tech global positioning equipment and "tip switches" on dog collars to make it easy to locate and kill a bear at point-blank range;
  • open the first-ever bear hunting season in San Luis Obispo county and expand the hunts in Modoc and Lassen counties; and
  • significantly expand the hound training season thereby allowing dogs to harass bears nearly all year long.
Read more about this on MercuryNews. Then please follow two easy steps to send a letter through Animal Legal Defense Fund website to Eric Loft, Chief of the Department of Fish and Game.

Please don't wait! A final decision on the proposal is set to take place in mid April.
