text of email from IWL's Barbara Simpson: Jan. 24, 2014
The hearing on canned hunting was just scheduled and is coming up quickly....please read on to learn what you can do....
The Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee chaired by Sen. Carlin Yoder will hear SB404 Hunting Preserves Monday, 10am at the State House Room 431. It is our understanding that amendments have been discussed and may be introduced in the committee meeting. We are not able to get a copy of the amendments before the committee. The IN Wildlife Federation, along with the vast majority of conservation organizations in Indiana, oppose high fence/canned hunting. These operations threaten the wild deer herd and are not fair chase. Please go to the link below to see the agenda and link to the bill language. Also note the committee members and call your senator.
