Born Free USA Position: SUPPORT
Update (February 2014): Failed to advance before the deadline, meaning that this bill is dead.
Would ban the hunting, trapping, or capturing of cougars (mountain lions).
Read about the inherent cruelty of trapping here.
The introduction of this bill represents an interest by Iowans in preventing the unnecessary killing of cougars and finding more effective ways to respond to the still rare occurrences of these big cats in Iowa.
Iowa residents, contact your state legislators and tell them that you would like to see this legislation reintroduced in 2015!
