Humane Society, ASPCA target confined-hunting bill

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Two-legged and four-legged lobbyists will head to the Indiana Statehouse on Tuesday to oppose a bill that would lift a ban on hunting animals in fenced areas.

The Humane Society of the United States and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals will mark the fifth annual Humane Lobby Day from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those groups and other Indiana residents will make their objection known to House Bill 1194, which would permit the hunting of farm-raised deer and game birds on “hunting preserves.”

The bill, which was referred to the House Committee on Natural Resources, did not advance. It would have allowed hunting without a license and without bag limits in settings opponents call “canned-hunting” environments. The measure was authored by Reps. Matt Ubelhor, R-Bloomfield; Bob Heaton, R-Terre Haute; and Heath VanNatter R-Kokomo.

Attending Humane Lobby Day will be Erin Huang, Indiana director for the HSUS, Vicki Deisner, state legislative director for ASPCA, service dog Tia, and research and rescue dog Coal.
