Stand with us in condemning the killing of wildlife for trophies, both in the United States and around the world. Sign the petition to end this cruel and unsportsmanlike pastime.
It's time to stop this cruelty
Each year, hunters and trappers kill hundreds of mountain lions and thousands of bobcats in Colorado for nothing more than a trophy and bragging rights.
But we can stop this cruel and needless practice by passing legislation that will prohibit the trophy hunting and trapping of wild cats in Colorado.
Even though fur sales are plummeting across the world, trappers still target Colorado's bobcats for their soft belly fur, which is sold on international markets. Canada lynx, who are very similar in appearance to bobcats, could soon lose their protections under the federal Endangered Species Act, putting their small population in Colorado at risk to trophy hunting.
We can't win this fight without you
Wildlife populations already struggle with increasing threats to their survival. Trophy hunting is an unnecessary, lethal threat to Colorado's wild cats.
According to a recent poll, the majority of Coloradans across this beautiful state oppose the needless killing of wild cats. We need to show state legislators that Coloradans care about this issue.
