The Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) enacted these regulations to ensure the prevention of excessive hunting.It also protected animals during the hibernation period, and outlawed the killing of mothers and their offspring.This new law will legalize inhumane practices of hunting, such as baiting hungry bears with food, shooting them at a close range, and enabling the entering of bear and wolf dens to kill them.
The new law would also eliminate the prohibition of hunting in the air (shooting animals from a helicopter or airplane). “What the Senate did today should outrage the conscience of every animal lover in America,” said Wayne Pacelle, who is the president of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
During the Obama administration, these sensible measures were put into place. This new law will make already vulnerable animals increasingly more vulnerable, as their will be no protections for them.
