Petition To Ban Bobcat Trapping, Hunting In Colorado Fails


U.S.A.-( Today, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission unanimously denied a petition to ban all bobcat hunting and trapping.

Safari Club International took swift action to ensure that the ill-conceived petition did not succeed.

SCI reached out to Colorado members and in less than a week they responded in full force by sending over 350 letters to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commissioners.

The letters explained why the petition was not only unnecessary but also could have negative impacts on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department’s ability to manage the state’s bobcat population.

SCI looks forward to continuing working with Colorado Parks and Wildlife and their Commission to make certain that hunting continues to be an important part of the state’s management of wildlife and that Colorado remains a state with excellent hunting opportunities.

STOP killing wildlife, bobcats included!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Stop killing cows too – get your meat from a grocery store! O boy……


So good to hear from the cheap seats (PETA, Humane Society of the United States, Vegans & other brain-dead liberal nit-wits) occupied by someone living outside of reality.


Mary go back to the kitchen and clean something the Men are talking. It is important that you know your place. As you have not educated yourself about wildlife management practices you should kindly shut your gaping mouth and go do something your good at. You know the women’s work I’m sure needs caught up in your home.

I’m sure Mary is a way better shot than you are there Mr Testosterone go nad ………
( Tiredamericanmale ) ………she sure sounds like a fine educated woman to me, but on the other hand your rude ignorant comment just shows why many women are afraid to voice their opinion in an mostly male forum….and oh by the way your wife called to have me remind you to take out the friekin garbage……………….. dipshit.!!!


Louis, you sound like one of those Feminist supporting pseudo-males or a Nancy boy. Go knit something (like some balls) and peddle your homo-commie crap elsewhere.
