Stop New Hunting Proposals That Threaten Polar Bears and the Environment

Target: United States Congress
Goal: To stop legislation that will endanger polar bears, other wildlife, the environment, and people

A newly proposed bill, H.R. 4089 called the “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012” would radically change current hunting legislation. The bill would allow wealthy, trophy hunters to import dead polar bears from Canada to the United States. The bill would force all federal agencies to make it legal to hunt on all federal public lands without regard for the impact on the wildlife or other resources. Additionally, the bill would take away power from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by no longer allowing them to protect habitats and people from lead poisoning due to exposure from toxic ammunition.

H.R. 4089 is a very harmful bill with extreme consequences that would negatively effect millions of animals and people. Importing trophy polar bears is not currently legal and if it was made legal it would most likely result in an increase of polar bear murders. This is not acceptable. This bill would undo polar bear protection that has been in place for years and likely cause a lot of harm to wildlife and humans. We need to protect the environment and all of the inhabitants not open it to destruction with no forethought to preservation.

Please, help protect the polar bears by telling the U.S. Congress to not pass this harmful legislation.

Dear U.S. Congress,

H.R. 4089, a recently proposed bill also called the “Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012,” would radically change current hunting legislation. The bill would allow dead polar bears to be imported from Canada for wealthy trophy hunters. Under the bill it would be legal to hunt on all federal public lands without consideration of the impact on the wildlife or other resources. The bill would no longer allowing the EPA to protect habitats and people from lead poisoning due to exposure from toxic ammunition.

H.R. 4089 is not acceptable. It would have extreme negative consequences and effect millions of animals and people. It would most likely result in an increase of polar bear murders. Polar bear protection has been in place for years. This could have a devastating impact on the wildlife and the environment. These things need to be protected, not open to destruction with no regard to preservation.

Please, help us protect our wildlife and do not allow this legislation to pass.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Its the ‘trophy hunters’ that need to be addressed. We’ve got people living in poverty, beyond what alot of us can really comprehend – including myself, environments being destroyed, the lists go on. And yet these wealthy people choose to do this with their money! What do they get out of this..’hey look at what I got, I bet you havn’t got one of these’ well whoopy shit, no I havn’t & guess what, I’m a much richer person than they’ll ever be for that reason.

    Heritage? To poison the wildlife with lead bullets? To import dead polar bears? This is nothing more than an ASS KISS to the RABID GUN NUTS at the NRA who won’t be happy until all the wildlife is shot, all the people are armed and probably until there is a freakin race war!!
    This bill is insanity and of course I’m sure the rethuglicons love it!!
