Washington: Urge Gov. Inslee to Protect Cougars

Thanks to constituents like you, Gov. Jay Inslee decisively overturned an undemocratic decision by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission that arbitrarily raised cougar-hunting quotas by up to 100 percent in areas of the state also inhabited by wolves. The Governor ordered the agency to restore quotas to prior levels and to open a public comment period before attempting to change the quota so that citizens are afforded a meaningful opportunity to voice their opinion. We applaud the Governor’s decision to rescind the Commission’s arbitrary decision that would have allowed trophy hunters to harm Washington’s precious cougar population.
