Thanks to everyone who participated in this event. We had so much fun that you can pretty much count on seeing this again next June 5!

Humane Society of the United States Ballot Initiative - DEFEATED

Statement from our partners at AZSFWC:

 

A coalition of AZSFWC member groups came together over a year ago in anticipation of something coming down the pipe from HSUS. The plan they put in place then, along with a strong grass roots effort by a number of individuals and other groups, defeated HSUS in their attempt to hijack scientific wildlife management in our state. This is no small feat because in 25 years and 81 initiatives across the country, HSUS has never quit - until now. When sportsmen and women come together, good things happen. But this victory is just the beginning, and there is much more to do.

We, along with our partners throughout the state, are closely monitoring the latest attempt to reject a century of sound scientific wildlife management from our Arizona Game & Fish Department biologists, and turn over the management of wild cats to the ballot box, with an emotion based, non-factual initiative.​
