Published 10/23/17 in tucson.com by Bettina Hansen

I learned that there’s an effort to ban wild cat trophy hunting and trapping on the Nov. 2018 ballot — and it’s not just to protect mountain lions. If this passes, bobcats will also be spared from cruel and painful traps, and protections for jaguars, ocelots and lynx will become codified. After attending the Arizonans for Wildlife kick-off event in Tucson, I am ready to dive in head first and help in any way I can. It’s time to speak out prohibit the trophy hunting of our wild cats once and for all! Check out www.azforwildlife.com for more information on how to get involved.
