For years, I've wanted to tackle a glaring oversight in America's federal legal code — an oversight that prevented primates around the world from being rescued and receiving humane, lifetime care — here in the U.S.
Please help us pass H.R. 3556, the Humane Care for Primates Act, introduced yesterday afternoon by Representatives Ellmers (R-NC) and DeFazio (D-OR), which will give abused primates around the world a second chance at a life worth living.
Purpose: This bill would amend the National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 to prohibit the use or possession of body-gripping traps in the National Wildlife Refuge System.
Status: Referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources on 11/15/13.
Washington, DC -- Born Free USA and The Humane Society of the United States, global leaders in animal welfare and wildlife conservation, applaud U.S. Representative Nita Lowey (D-NY) for re-introducing the Refuge From Cruel Trapping Act (H.R. 3513), and urge the bill’s swift passage. H.R. 3513 would ban all body-gripping traps — snare, Conibear, and steel-jaw leghold — from being used or possessed on National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs). This humane legislation addresses the inherent cruelty of body-gripping traps and seeks to ensure that all NWRs are safe havens for wildlife.
Today, December 4, is International Cheetah Day! Sadly, cheetahs remain one of the most popular choices for exotic pets. Stand up for cheetahs by fighting to keep them in the wild—where they belong!
