Activist Alert, June 2015:
Help to ban commercial trapping of bobcats in California!

      Currently commercial trappers kill as many as 1,500 bobcats each year in California. In 2013 the Bobcat Protection Act approved new state requirements to protect bobcats from commercial trapping on lands around national or state parks and wildlife refuges. Now, at last, the CA State Fish and Game Commission is finally preparing to adopt regulations to establish those no-trap buffers around parks and refuges. Public comments on that option are invited.

      But a second option is even better for bobcats. That second option asks Californians whether the commercial trapping of bobcats should be totally ended in the state.

      This is a rare chance for wildlife supporters to submit comments to support a total ban on commercial trapping of bobcats in California.
