California Assembly Member Sydney Kamlager-Dove’s (D- Los Angeles) Assembly Bill 1254, which would ban bobcat hunting, will get a hearing on May 1 in the Assembly Appropriations Committee. The hearing will take place at 9 a.m. in room 4202 of the state capitol building. The bill has already passed out of the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks and Wildlife by a vote of 9-4.


Take Action Today! California sportsmen and women should contact their state assembly member and ask them to vote NO on AB 1254. Members can find their assembly member by using the Sportsmen’s Alliance Legislative Action Center.


California politicians, in concert with animal-rights activists, are at it again. Current California law already bans bobcat trapping in the state, as well as bobcat hunting with dogs. However, other forms of hunting are still allowed.

“Unfortunately, this is just another example of the direction California is heading,” said Bruce Tague, Sportsmen’s Alliance vice president of government affairs. “California sportsmen and predator callers need to step up and make their voices heard.”
