New Jersey. Bill S2649. Senator Bob Smith. Assembly Agricultural Committee.Urgent Action Needed. A Message from the APLNJ. November 2011.

Dear Members, Supporters and Friends,

After meeting with key legislators in the Assembly Environment and Solid Waste Committee, we effectively halted movement on S2649, a ghastly and deadly bill for deer. . . In a underhanded maneuver, Senator Bob Smith (D-17), the sponsor, moved the bill to the Assembly Agriculture Committee, where he knows there is support for his pro-hunt agenda.

In behalf of the deer, who are victimized and maligned, we urge you to take action. (see TAKE 5 MINUTES AND DO THREE WONDERFUL THINGS FOR DEER! below).

Please save these and other deer from becoming dead bodies in the backs of trucks, heads in buckets, and heads on the walls of hunters.



TAKE 5 MINUTES AND DO THREE WONDERFUL THINGS FOR DEER!

Please start calling on Monday. Talking points are available here: http://aplnj.org/Legislation.php

New Jersey Bear Hunt 2011. NJ DFW. The Killing Continues. It's a Business, not Science.

Here we are again, at death's door, with the 2011 New Jersey Black Bear Massacre only three weeks away. The killing will begin on December 5th and will last five days. Last year's bear massacre resulted in 589 dead, most of them one-year and less in age, weighing less than 75 pounds. The smallest kill weighed only 30 pounds. Three hundred and seventy-eight (378) were just cubs. That's more than half of all the dead.

These facts were gleaned from the published report of the NJ Department of Fish & Wildlife, a government body that portrays itself as some kind of overseer of the environment, the protector of animals in that environment, and the provider recreational possibilities offered by the environment.

But, make no mistake. The New Jersey DFW is not the Sierra Club, and it does not have any affinity with John Muir's grand design, with his love of nature and respect for animals.

In fact, the NJ DFW has stooped so low as to encourage young adults to take up hunting (i…

New Jersey. November 2001 Elections. Who to Love and Who to Reject. KLIP.

Dear Friends of NJ Wildlife and ALL Animals, Please feel free to cross post and forward! Following up our previous email on Voting Humanely on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8th, we are providing you with the list of the BEST and WORST New Jersey Legislators on animal issues, wildlife as well as companion animal. Also included (see below is the list of NJ legislators belonging to the NJ Angling & Hunting Conservation Caucus aka Sportsmen's Caucus. Obviously, we DO NOT SUPPORT any member of the Sportsmen's Caucus. The fact is that the ONLY way we will create change in NJ Div. of Fish & Wildlife policies, as well as increasing protection of companion animals is through the VOTE. Do we vote FOR animal protection, or AGAINST it. YOU hold the power with your VOTE. The League of Humane Voters of NJ 2011 endorsement list was compiled based strictly on the following criteria: - Voting records on companion and wildlife issues
- Memberships in hunting or trapping caucus…

November 2011 Elections. District 40. New Jersey. Cassandra Lazzarra for the Assembly. A Message from KLIP.

Dear Friends of NJ Wildlife and ALL Animals,

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th. Many registered voters only turn out for 'major' - presidential or gubernatorial elections. This Election Day is MAJOR. You will be able to vote OUT members of the NJ State Senate and Assembly who have sponsored and voted some of the most inhumane animal legislation in history. Who have compromised public safety for the sake of 'sport' by reducing the bow hunt perimeter from 450 feet to 150 from occupied buildings, as in private homes. You have the opportunity to send a clear message to our state legislators, including our governor, that we DEMAND non-lethal solutions to wildlife conflicts in New Jersey. Think of Election Day as the day of CHANGE for NJ animals.

Local elections empower us. Protesting deer and bear hunts goes only so far. If we keep electing the same state legislators who are deeply imbedded in the 'Sportsmen's Caucus', we defeat our own ef…
