August 26, 2013 UPDATE: Senate Bill 132 Passes the Legislature!

The Mountain Lion Foundation (MLF) applauds the California Legislature for voting to curtail the inhumane practice of killing mountain lions that come into contact with people but pose no imminent threat to public safety.

Senate Bill 132 authored by Senator Jerry Hill, D-Santa Clara passed the Senate and Assembly unanimously, but returned to the Senate floor today for a final vote on amendments made in the Assembly. The bill passed the concurrence vote with only two nay votes, easily achieving the 4/5ths vote required for changes to Proposition 117, the California Wildlife Protection Act of 1990.

For more information, read MLF's August 26th news story, Californa Senate Bill 132 Passes Out of the State Legislature.

The bill now advances to the Governor's desk with widespread public support. "With this very important vote, California is one step closer to ending the unnecessary killing of mountain lions." said Timothy Dunbar, Executive Director of the Foundation. "We applaud Senator Hill for recognizing the value of mountain lions to California's environment and for championing nonlethal responses to mountain lion encounters."

Please send a letter in support of Senate Bill 132 to:

Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

You may also telephone the Governor's office to express your support: (916) 445-2841

Noted, email below sent, twittered, fb and google shared. Thanks Cher.

Dear Governor Brown:

I am writing to you today to respectfully request that you approve California Senate Bill 132 - The California Mountain Lion Safety Bill.

Finding alternative methods to the unnecessary killing of innocent mountain lions while still keeping public safety in place is a win/win choice for all concerned. There is far too much needless killing of wildlife happening in this country and by approving this bill, you will be showing that you can balance the needs of both the public and wildlife with compassion and integrity. This would be a unique opportunity to be a leader in promoting non-lethal measures when it comes to human and animal co-existence.

I greatly appreciate your time and consideration of this bill.

With sincere appreciation,

Ms. Tamara Hayes
