Hounding - the use of packs of dogs to chase and tree another animal as part of a hunt is unsporting, unethical and inhumane. California is one of the few states to still allow the use of hounds to hunt bears and bobcats, but we have the chance to end

signed....if not cruel to the big cats and bears...what about the dogs that get maimed and killed? Freakin cowardly hunters ought to go after the animals themselves. Maybe armed with nothing more than a hunting knife or a rock. They want to hunt like cavemen, then give them a sack of rocks with their "hunting license"!

What the hell kind of "hunting" is this, anyway? I do not see much of a chance for the poor bear or bobcat. Does not sound very sporting does it? Hound and kill, is what it sounds like to me. Pretty poor sport. How inhumane this is. It shows a total lack of human compassion. Is this how Californians want the rest of the country to see them? I certainly hope not.

This is legal in America !!! what is going on over there, it seems most petitions I sign against animal cruelty concern America - what a shame.
America should be leading the world in animal care.
This is not hunting, just like cowardly hiding behind a gun at a safe distance, killing for fun is not hunting, Humans, will they ever learn to respect all creatures and this planet - OH, and a god put humans here !!!
