"Trump administration has shockingly reached a new low in its treatment of wildlife" says the President of Defenders of Wildlife - they will allow killing of bear and wolf cubs and bait and trap adults for trophies in preserves created to protect them.

(personal note: I know there have been a lot of posts criticizing the Trump Administration which would seem to appear to be political in nature and I apologize to Mr. Trump's followers if this hurts their feelings but I only report what I find in the news about animals and, unfortunately, this administration has been the worst we, animal right activists, have seen in the last 50 years for the environment and animal protection so there has been A LOT of bad news)

Thank you, John! Another piece on the same issue that explains what happened and when in more detail. Now let's see what PIJAC comes back with because, back in 2004, they were sending letters telling people that, if this went through, the government was going to take all their pet birds away and that they needed to call their representatives asking them to table this. Let's hope people are better informed this time and the whole thing goes through.
