Dear Governor Brown:
Please Veto SB1221. This is a case of the majority taking freedom away from a minority.
There is no biological reason for elimination of hound hunting for black bears. On the other hand, there are many good reasons why hunting bears is a good thing. First of all, in areas where black bears are not hunted with hounds, bears are causing significant damage to homeowners. (Lake Tahoe for example.)
Hound hunting produces revenue that is beneficial to all wildlife management.
This is your chance to be a voice of reason.
