SACRAMENTO – (September 9, 2019) – Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager-Dove’s (D-Los Angeles) bill to place a moratorium on the cruel and unnecessary trophy hunting of bobcats in California passed the State Senate today on a 31-7 vote.

“California is a leader in wildlife protection and yet the state allows bobcats to be killed merely as trophies,” said Kamlager-Dove. “Nobody hunts bobcats as sustenance. The population of these small predators is self-regulating naturally. Hunting these magnificent creatures is not only without practical necessity, it is immoral.”
