ANTI-HUNTING CAMPBELL-DEFAZIO AMENDMENT VOTED DOWN IN CONGRESS
A proposal by Congressmen John Campbell (R-Calif.) and Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) to prohibit necessary and legal practices used to effectively manage wildlife and predator species was overwhelmingly defeated this week in the House of Representatives. The amendment to H.R. 2112--the Agriculture appropriations bill--was strongly opposed by NRA and other pro-hunting organizations. It was pushed by the Humane Society of the United States and other radical anti-hunting groups.
