Action Alert for Raccoons

URGENT UPDATE! In spite of receiving hundreds of calls in opposition to HB 423, a bill that would allow LIVE raccoons to be trapped and used as bait in hunting field trail competitions, the Senate Natural Resources and Environment Committee approved this bill.

We must fight harder than ever. Committee members obviously had already made up their minds, but your senators may be undecided. They do not want to lose your vote. Your Georgia state senators MUST hear from you! Urge them to vote NO on HB 423!

To find your senator’s contact info follow the easy steps below:

1. For your State Senator click: http://votesmart.org/
2. Type your address or 9 digit zip code in the box and click "Search." (If your address doesn't bring the page up your 9 digit zip code will.)
4. Click "State Legislative."
5. Beneath "State Senate" your senator's name is underlined. Click his/her name.
6. Your senator's email address and phone contact information appears.
7. Call your senator at the capitol number AND the district number and ask him/her to "vote NO on HB 423."
8. The subject line of your email should read: Vote NO on HB 423
