Welcome to the Guardians of Angels Humane Society 


Polar Bears and Wildlife in Peril



UPDATE: The senate will soon be voting on the "Sportsmen's Act" and your two U.S. Senators need to hear from you immediately.

On federal lands across the nation, deer nibble on new green shoots, foxes snug in their dens, and doves flit from branch to branch. These, and millions of other animals besides, are blissfully unaware of a bill looming in Congress that would turn their worlds upside down.

The so-called "Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2014" (S. 2363) is a devious bill that combines several radical hunting proposals into one package. In a single swoop, this legislation would open millions of acres of public lands -- including sensitive Wilderness Areas -- to hunting and fur trapping, at the expense of other land users and endangered and threatened species. It would prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from even considering the issue of toxic lead ammunition which poisons wildlife and the environment. And it would permit the latest in a series of import allowances for sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada, encouraging trophy hunters to escalate the killing of threatened species around the globe.

TAKE ACTION
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your two U.S. Senators, urging opposition for S. 2363. Look up your senators' phone numbers here. You can say: "I would like you to please oppose S. 2363, the Bipartisan Sportsmen's Act of 2014."

After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), personalize and submit the letter in the form below to automatically send a follow-up message. We encourage you to add your own thoughts or comments about this legislation in the editable portion, so your federal legislators know how important this issue is to you personally.

Let's continue to work together to end animal suffering and euthanasia in Chatham County!
