Cecil's story has shone a bright light on the pay-to-slay subculture of the trophy killing industry and as a result, the public has voiced their outrage. Now it's time for the U.S. Congress to act on it.
Congress is considering the so-called "Bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act", which provides a sweetheart deal for millionaire trophy hunters by allowing the import of the heads of rare polar bears they shot in Canada. Polar bears are a threatened species, but these trophy hunters want a special congressional waiver.
Please ask your U.S. Senators to oppose S. 405 and withdraw their name if they have already cosponsored this cruel bill. Look up your senators' phone numbers.
