Stop SB1221

    2. Petition by

      Randy Thompson

      Fresno, CA

I am writing this letter in opposition of SB1221
I am a Houndsman; I feel this bill has been brought to the legislature not based on sound science and biology, but the emotions of some individuals with the support of a special interest group; the Humane Society of the United States. this bill was written as Revenge for the Hunting communities defence and support  of California department of Fish and Game's Commission President Dan Richards when the HSUS tried to have him ousted from his Position for Legally harvesting a Mountain Lion in the state of Idaho with a Licesned guide and Hounds.The HSUS has openly announced that their agenda is to abolish ALL use of animals and Hunting by the human race. This same Special Interest Group are being investigated by the federal trade commission for their false advertising, claiming the received donations are allocated towards animals in shelters; truth be told less than 1% of their funds are used for this purpose, however instead is spent on bills like SB1221. Bills that flagrantly infringe upon the peoples freedom of choice; to perform in the legal and family orientated Sport of hound hunting of Bears and Bobcats.

      Just remember this quote; It Came from the Hitler era..But It Still holds true Today..and they are starting with the Sportsmen/women

      " First they came for the communists,
      and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

      Then they came for the trade unionists,
      and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

      Then they came for the Jews,
      and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

      Then they came for me
      and there was no one left to speak out for me."

      As well as the hunters, anyone who eats meat, anyone who produces milk & eggs, people who fish....

      & remember HSUS is NOT the Humane Society!!!! Please no one donate to them. HSUS are lobbyists and their sole Goal is to take away every thing we stand for as American Sportsmen/Women
      If you want to donate, donate to your local pet rescue, So the Money will Actually go to the Animals that need the Help.... not HSUS!!! ~

      It is are right to hunt. The dogs are ment to run bears and bobcat. It runs in their blood, Its what they love to do and so do the houndsmen! If you dont agree with it then dont go in the woods and you will not be around it.

      The animal rights group claim to have compassion for animals, yet look what they are trying to do to these poor dogs that they are claiming to protect. These dogs know when the fall season is coming and the excitement in their behavior is evident that they know that soon they will be able to run like the wind and feel true freedom that no city dog will ever get to do. What about their rights as a breed that live to hunt....I also see the hatred that these animal rights folks portray. It is obvious that they have no Christian bones in their body,. Controling, self centered and full of their own desire to make people see it their way once and for all. I pray you do not pass this bill and further chip away at the core of american heritage and hunting rights...God Bless America as it used to be...

      If passed, SB 1221 would cause the Department of Fish and Game to lose over a million dollars in potential revenue. With the current state budget crisis, any unnecessary loss in revenue simply does not make sense.

      If they stop running dogs the bear population will get out of control.
