Just last year, the Montana Governor illegally killed a wolf in Yellowstone National Park. A few months later, Gianforte shot a mountain lion that hounds had chased into a tree.
Since it is obvious that the Montana Governor does not value the lives of these precious creatures, we must put pressure on the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission to protect the state’s vital species.
If the new proposed bill SB 22-031 gets signed into law, it would make it illegal to hunt bobcats, lynx, and mountain lions within the state.
There is no ethical reason that civilians should be able to simply track, hunt, and kill mountain lions for sport.
