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.
