Help Mountain Lions in CA -
Ask Governor Brown to sign SB 132 into law

In Defense of Animals(Valid California address is required - P.O. Boxes cannot be used)

In Defense of Animals applauds the California Legislature for passing SB 132 with a 35 - 2 vote on the Senate floor. The bill now advances to Governor Brown’s desk for signing into law.

After the recent unjustified and tragic shootings of an adult mountain lion, and then later of two four-months old, merely 13-pound bobcat kittens, Senator Jerry Hill (D-Santa Clara) championed this important legislation to ensure the compassionate and respectful treatment of mountain lions who have simply lost their way and ended up in our cities without causing any harm.

Senate Bill 132 requires the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to utilize non-lethal capture procedures for mountain lions who come into contact with people but pose no actual threat. The bill also authorizes CDFW to partner with qualified individuals and NGOs to assist the Department in resolving mountain lion encounters with non-lethal methods.

Please e-mail a letter to Governor Brown today, and then follow up with a call at (916) 445-2841, to urge him to sign SB 132 into law without any delay. This bill has strong public support, but we need to make sure it becomes law.
