Wild Sheep Society re: Anti Hunting Push
« on: February 25, 2021, 11:58:10 AM »

A group is attempting a ban on hunting of large carnivores and more - here’s the statement from the sheep society;

‘Thinly veiled under the guise of conservation, a concerted attack is now in place against ‘large carnivores’- specifically named are black bears, cougars, wolves and elk as they are mentioned as ‘trophy hunted only’. Noted in this same push by anti-hunting groups are bighorn sheep, part of our very life blood as an organization. We know firsthand that these sheep are so much more than the ‘trophy’ as claimed- that they are an icon of the hills that we care so passionately about. And that through our annual sheep counts as volunteers, know that there are no dangers of extirpation.’

Follow the link below to send an email and help out, sitting on our hands won’t assist us. It takes less than 3 minutes!

Slippery slope this one. They have already identified sheep and elk hunting as their next targets.

Hope a few from here realize what we're up against, and take the few minutes required to help.

Cheers,

The BC Wildlife Federation has stepped up with a similar program.

Good idea to hit it too...

Your Right to Hunt Is at Risk

"Over the past month, the anti-hunting movement has attracted headlines across the province. Now that grizzly bear hunting is closed, anti-hunting organizations are looking to close black bear, cougar and wolf hunting across the province. We expect this movement will continue to sheep and goat hunting as well as catch-and-release fishing. Some in the anti-hunting movement have recently suggested all hunting should be closed.

Recently, the BCWF has been in the media opposing the misinformed rhetoric villainizing hunters but more work needs to be done. The collection of interviews and articles can be found below.

The B.C. Wildlife Federation is working with the Wild Sheep Society of BC and other organizations to take a stand and fight back against the anti-hunting movement and we need your help. Our plan is to deliver at least 25,000 letters to the B.C. legislature by June."

Here's an inkling of the mindset (don't watch if you get upset easily...)

Overdue for us to make a stand against this foolishness!
