Nebraska Senator Threatens to Shutdown Legisature Over Mountain Lion Hunt

“Despite a growing population and the need for management, animal rights and anti-hunting activists don’t want to let the professional wildlife managers do their job,” said Nick Pinizzotto, USSA’s president and CEO. “Somehow they are of the mistaken belief that they know how to better manage Nebraska’s wildlife populations from their offices in Washington D.C.”
The bill, LB 671 sponsored by Senator Ernie Chambers (D-Omaha), would ban mountain lion hunting, threatening not only livestock but public safety also. Senator Chambers has also announced his intentions to oppose every proposal of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission until the mountain lion season is abolished.
