The need to pass pending legislation to ban wildlife-killing contests in NY, like the cruel "Squirrel Slam" in Holley, couldn't be more urgent. Senate Bill # 4074 and Assembly Bill # 03661 would finally put an end to all competitions based on shooting and killing animals. We urge all NY residents to contact their legislator about passing these bills.
You can take action to end animal-killing contests like this one:
- New York residents should contact their state legislators, and ask them to sign on as co-sponsors and urge passage of the bill to ban wildlife-killing contests in NY—Senate bill #4074 and Assembly bill #03661.
- Contact NY state Sen. Mark Grisanti, chairman of the Environmental Conservation Committee, where the bills are evaluated before being sent to the floor for a final decision, and tell him you support Senate bill #4074. Buffalo Office : 65 Court St. Room 213 Buffalo, NY 14202. Phone: 716-854-8705 Fax: 716-854-3051 Email: email@example.com
