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.

  1. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  4. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  5. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.
