Sacramento, CA –-(Ammoland.com)- After animal-rights interests– led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) – launched an all-out campaign seeking the removal of California Fish and Game Commission President, Dan Richards for being a hunter.
Back Story: Richards was photographed with a mountain lion he killed on a legal hunt in Idaho, and the photograph has been circulating on the Internet. It is illegal to hunt and kill a mountain lion in California, but it is legal to do so in Idaho. Richards had the proper license and tag to kill the cougar.
They were joined in their effort by members of the California State Assembly in demanding that he resign from his position as Game Commission President.
What follows is the State Assembly Letter and California Fish demanding his resignation and below that Game Commission President, Dan Richard’s stern response letter.
CA State Assembly Letter to Dan Richards
Game Commission President, Dan Richard’s response letter.
Mr. Richard’s letter was direct, factual, and to the point. He has every right to continue to practice legal, ethical hunting, backed up by conservation based on science and not feel-good policy. God bless men like Dan Richards who are the tip of the spear in the fight against the anti-hunting minority.
