STOP Inhumane Hunting of Hibernating Animals in Alaska
This petition had 44,311 supporters
"By a largely party-line vote Tuesday, the Senate approved a bill that repeals Obama-era hunting restrictions on national wildlife refuges in Alaska. The House already voted last month to abolish those restrictions — which were instituted by the Fish and Wildlife Service in 2016 to protect predator species from hunters — and so the bill now heads to the desk of President Trump, who is widely expected to sign it. The FWS rule facing repeal explicitly prohibited many kinds of "predator control" on the 16 federally owned refuges in Alaska. That prohibition included a ban on the aerial hunting, live trapping or baiting of predators such as bears and wolves — as well as on killing those predators while near their dens or their cubs." - http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/03/22/521089304/congress-rolls-back-obama-era-rule-on-hunting-bears-and-wolves-in-alaska
Mr. Trump has the opportunity to finally stand up for someone--animals that cannot stand for themselves. Murdering a mother bear and her babies in their dens during hibernation is not hunting, it's cowardly and cruel. Sign the petition asking Trump not to sign a bill that would repeal the restrictions on hunting in/near dens and baiting or live trapping these precious animals in Alaska. Please protect animals from these cruel and unfair tactics :(
