I will do it! May I suggest you include in this post or a follow up, a sample letter people can mail? This can help those who may struggle with what to write and opt not to mail it.:)

Thanks Eileen! I was just editing my original letter so it wasn't so long. I have posted the condensed version as an update. Thanks for your comment and your support!!

Just FYI Tim, the word 'bating' is reflected as 'baying'. Thanks for the sample letter, I already wrote a card (with a polar bear on the front with 'peace on earth') and appreciate seeing how you approach this for future correspondence on this case or any other. Thanks for taking the time.

Hi Crystal, It is called both bear baiting and bear baying. In the proposed legislation, it is referred to as "bear baying". The reason they call it bear baying is ... the dogs are supposed to keep the bear "at bay". However, it always ends up that the dogs don't keep the bear at bay, they viciously attack it for hours on end. It's a veiled way to promote an animal pit fight. The bears always lose though.

Unfortunately, I can't take this pledge because I'm not from the U.S., but please, Americans, do this and end this horror!

I am European too and I am sending it by post, you can do it too if you really want it to stop. They must realise the world is looking at them.

I hope there are enough Americans who will do something against those evil practices. Not the animals are bad, but mankind is...
